Toronto, Canada – More than 20 artists from around the world will do something that’s never been done before – create art simultaneously on their iPads. Artists from the Philippines, Madagascar, Serbia, Mexico, Kenya, Canada, The UK, Egypt, Italy, Bolivia, Russia, Germany and the United States will create works of art and upload them at the same time creating a collage of drawings from multiple cultures, time zones and perspectives.
They’ll all be drawing the same thing too. Their model? Cute Baby piglets of course. The models will be shown on “U Stream” so all artists will be able to draw during the scheduled times on June 15. These mini and micro pigs are from five breeding farms in the United States and Canada and will be strutting their stuff on uStream TV.
“This will be an excellent exhibition, as everybody loves cute baby pigs,” says Kyle Reynher, an artist from the island country of Madagascar. “iPads are hard to come by in my country and there are many clones, so not to jeopardize my work, I will use a real iPad.”
Shady Haseeb – Cario, Egypt – born in artistic family, studied fine arts in faculty of fine arts in Cairo. Shady has always been inspired with Egyptian nature and Egyptians multicultural civilization. “Pigs have a strong history in many hieroglyphics, drawing a pig image on the ipad tablet is new form of this tradition”.
According to event organizer and iPhone app developer Christine Sommers, “The artist’s drawings will be made into canvas rendering then auctioned off later this month. We hope to raise several thousand dollars for Hope International an emergency aid organization.
The artists will be using a new iPad app called “Draw the Pig.” The app allows people to dress up and draw a pig partially created on their iPads. “It’s like paint by numbers meets Mr.Potato Head” says Sommers.
