Adobe brings to life the 100-year old brushes of Edvard Munch and Competition

Share

Adobe has today announced an innovative, first of its kind project, The Hidden Treasures of Creativity, which will digitally recreate the over 100-year old paint brushes of Edvard Munch to inspire a new generation of master painters. In collaboration with The Munch Museum in Oslo and award winning Photoshop brush maker Kyle T. Webster, Adobe has digitally replicated seven of Munch’s original brushes and made them available in Creative Cloud for Photoshop and Sketch users worldwide.

With the support of the Munch Museum’s conservation experts, Munch’s original brushes were photographed in 360 degrees using ultra-high-resolution cameras, which captured all angles and details to create an accurate three dimensional representation. Munch’s artistic style and brushwork were closely analysed by specialists, and combined with data about the brushes’ attributes, including physical properties such as flexibility and bristle type.

The process of turning the data and scans into Photoshop brushes was then performed by Kyle T. Webster, regarded by many as the world’s foremost authority on Photoshop brushes. In collaboration with the museum experts, Kyle has been able to capture the exact shape and performance attributes of each of the brushes, which are available to download for use in Photoshop and Sketch from today.

Simon Morris, Senior Director of Campaign Marketing at Adobe said: “There are certain pieces of art we all know and love. These works transcend time, living on to influence modern creatives, and society as a whole. But we rarely think about the tools that were used to create those masterpieces.”

“The Hidden Treasures of Creativity is all about bringing these tools back to life and placing them in the hands of a new generation of artists. Institutions such as The Met in New York and The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam are already making their collections available online to help keep classic works of art in the public eye. This innovative project is an extension of this movement, making it possible for today’s artists to rediscover and treasure the brush of a master and use it to create their very own masterpiece.”

Adobe will also be running a contest over the next month between 15th June – 14th July 2017.

This is to encourage Photoshop and Sketch users to make use of these exclusive brushes to create their own versions of Munch’s most famous and iconic painting, ‘The Scream’. Edvard Munch made four different versions of the artwork and 80 years on, Adobe is challenging artists worldwide to create ‘The 5th Scream’.

Entrants will be able to submit their masterpiece by uploading their artwork to Behance with the tag #MunchContest for the opportunity to have their work of art displayed in The Munch Museum in Oslo and as part of a special Behance collection. In addition, the grand winner will receive a cash prize of €6,000 and an all-expenses paid trip to Adobe MAX, the world’s leading creativity conference, taking place in Las Vegas from 18th-20th October 2017 among other prizes. Submissions will be judged on originality, artistic composition, consistency with the theme and creativity by a dedicated panel of judges. The brushes can be downloaded online here with supporting tutorials being made available as part of the campaign. Winners of the contest will be announced on 28th July 2017.

Mobile Photography & Art Challenge – One Day Odyssey

Share

We are launching a new Challenge today that is relevant to all genres of mobile photography and art. This is a Challenge like no other!  It is for one complete day, at least seven hours and we want you to submit a minimum of ten and no more than fifteen images. The idea of this project is that you take yourself on an journey and spend all day taking mobile photographs and/or creating mobile art.

We want you to dedicate a whole day to photography and art because you deserve it.  So, please mark a day on your calendar and spend that day taking and creating mobile images.

We don’t mind what type of photography you do, you may prefer to walk off into luscious landscape, if you do, perhaps you will want to arrive at sunrise and walk all day until sunset.

You may prefer to have a day taking portraiture images, this could be a prearranged shoot, or you may prefer to take some group portraiture in the streets.

You could go all out and settle on street photography, perhaps try and visit as many towns as you can in one day to photograph.

Whilst on this odyssey, consider collecting some non photographic items/momentos from your trip and including these in the images you create, such as a bus/tube/subway ticket.

This Odyssey will run from 30th May 2017 – 30th June 2017

Mobile Photography Competition – H2O FOR PEACE – IPHONEOGRAPHY FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

Share

This new initiative, called H2O for Peace – iPhoneography for Human Rights, features an international photographic competition in collaboration with the NEM – the New Era Museum (a Virtual Museum and International Artistic Movement) which has made specific images captured and revisited by smartphones its philosophy.

The competition ends at the beginning of June with the selection of the finalists and the proclamation of the winner. The works chosen will be screened at the Fondazione Campana dei Caduti, Rovereto and included in a video clip with music by Marco Testoni performed by the Pollock Art-Jazz Project. Along with the photographs selected, visitors may view the video at the Foundation, on the social networks and the web, as well as during international events aimed at highlighting the results obtained and the emotions aroused by the competitors’ works.

This campaign has chosen the art which more than any other spells sharing: iPhoneography, as we know is a widespread, democratic art which permits people to create images using their smartphones and share them on the internet and the social networks. The enormous potential of this art make it the ideal creative medium for providing the whole world with a means of speaking about an important topic like water. This art, born on the social web, is now examined and studied in for its intrinsic worth and its strongly democratic nature also within traditional photographic environments.

The president of the jury is Andrea Bigiarini, originator and founder of the NEM. The works will also be adjudicated by: Marco Di Battista, Dilshad Corleone, Giancarlo Beltrame, Davide Capponi.

Send up to three images to this link: http://www.h2oforpeace.net/the-contest/
