Mobile Art – APPart Interview with Wanphen Sangkamee aka: Gummy

Share

We are huge fans of Wanphen Sangkamee aka: Gummy’s mobile artwork here at TheAppWhisperer and absolutely adore this interview between our APPart editor, Bobbi McMurry and Gummy. Please sit down, put your feet up and enjoy this wonderful article with us, for a few minutes in your day (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Bobbi

Gummy

I love animals though cows and fish aren’t likely to be top of mind when I think of them  that is unless they created by Wanphen Sangamee. There’s a sense of childlike honesty in her painterly strokes and simplistic palette that I don’t see very often within the realms of mobile art. Picasso once said, “It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a life time to paint like a child”.  Gummy doesn’t take herself too seriously and her intuitive work reveals an openness to maintain a sense of innocent curiosity so many “grow out of” as we become adults. She has intentionally created a lifestyle for herself that embraces her need to experience the world purely and to pour that virtue into her art. I trust you’ll enjoy getting to know a little bit about her.

Mobile Photography & Art – The Courage to be Afraid – Showcase for Carolyn Hall Young

Share

Recently, I set up a Facebook group entitled – The Courage to be Afraid – A Tender Tribute to Human Valiance with Carolyn Hall Young. Hall Young is our dear friend and hugely talented artist and many of you are aware that she is currently experiencing particularly challenging health issues. This group was made with love and is full of love from all the artists who have joined this group to create and share their images for her. I have complied each image into a film showcase, so that she can view all of them in one sitting (hopefully). When she is feeling more well, I am sure she will be able to vist the group and view all of your kind words in full (more so, than the space allows me to write the titles).

(Please do note, that I have gone through the group several times, searching for all the images for this particular showcase and I believe I have included everyone, if not, please just let me know and I will add you).

Many thanks to the following artists for creating these images for Carolyn:

Few Days Left to View the Mobile Photography & Art Exhibition at the Seoul Museum of Art

Share

I hope you will recall my mobile photography and art Presentation in Seoul, South Korea in September this year. If not, please take a look here, also please take a look at the Showcase that I presented to the audience, with your art.

The reason I writing this post is that the exhibition is still on display but sadly it ends of the 13th December (I really wish I could have been there for the entire duration).

These are the images, I selected to exhibit, I was only asked for my own but I would not settle for that, I took what I could with me, here they are. Many thanks to Jun Yamaguchi, Sarah Jarrett, Damian De Souza, Janine Graf, Mimi Svanberg, Roger Guetta and Carolyn Hall Young.

Huge thanks to the Seoul Museum of Art and of course to Digifun for inviting and taking care of me so well.

DigiFunArt Festival 2015 at The Seoul Museum of Art – Introduction

Share

Many of you will be aware that I was invited to lecture at the Seoul Museum of Art, South Korea on 23 September 2015.  It was a huge honour for me to be invited by DigiFun Art to participate in the DigiFun Art: Urban Scape Mobile Photography & Art Exhibition and Festival at this most prestigious museum.  

Seoul Museum of Art is the representative art museum of Seoul, the capital of Korea and a central city of Asia, that aims to be a ‘Beautiful, Good, and Smart Art Museum.’ In order to accomplish this goal, the museum has set up two major objectives: to become a world-renowned art museum and to be a museum for the city and its people. Under such objectives, the museum is making great efforts to expand and promote itself as a place for culture and the arts as well as a space for meaningful social education. Through a variety of exhibitions and educational programs that reflect a cosmopolitan sense, regional characteristics, professionalism, and popularity, the museum hopes to reach its goals.

This exhibition titled DigiFun Art: Urban Scape aims to show how mobile devices and their various applications, which have become more than essential to us, also serve as a new artistic tool for artists; as well as to shed light on creative activities in new fields that have emerged through the various functions of smart devices.

The term ‘DigiFun’ in the title of the exhibition is a compound word made from ‘digital’ and ‘fun.’ Just as the contemporary British artist David Hockney has been creating and presenting a series of iPad drawings since 2009, portable mobile gadgets allow people to engage in creative activities without being limited by place or conventional tools such as brushes or water colours, and fulfil the basic need for novelty and pleasure.

The Opening Ceremony took place on 22 September 2015 and the exhibition runs to 13 December 2015. Please do visit, if you can.

Other artists participating in the Digifun Art Mobile Art Exhibition & Festival include Susan Murtaugh, Jeremy Sutton, Hong Seung-Hye, Hong Kyoungtack, Kim Yong-chul, Kim Yong-kwan, Park Gwang-soo, Lee Fi, Jörg Hinz, Ahn Seung-joon and Hong-kyu Kim.  I also personally asked to include art by Sarah Jarrett, Mimi Svanberg, Jun Yamaguchi, Janine Graf, Roger Guetta and Carolyn Hall Young – their works including my own are displayed on a digital screen within the exhibition.  

Huge thanks go to Professor Ahn, Amy Chung and Sangwoo Kang of DigiFun Art and also to Ara Jo  Seung-Eun Una Lee and all their colleagues at the Seoul Museum of Art for organising and inviting me to lecture at this spellbinding mobile art festival.

Photos included here were taking by various people including Ara Jo and Sangwoo Kang.

Yesterday, I published the main Flickr Group Showcase that I showed during my lecture, if you missed that, please go here. In my next post, I will publish the first part of my lecture.
