I added a mentoring program to MAG MobileArtGroup Facebook so that mobile artists can provide assistance to another person in our community and/ or receive it.
I’m happy to see all of us establishing stronger relationships with other people and I hope they will sign up.
Anyone interested in receiving assistance (about apps, various techniques, difficulties in editing) from a member of the group or giving them, should write their own comment here.
When we have a list of names between those who ask for assistance and those who are willing to give it, I will activate the program.
One of the possibilities that I love most in Mobile Art is the overlap of layers.
I love starting from a photo, editing it, overlaying other photos or stickers or drawing on it to get a new image that comes from an idea or an emotion.
To get the overlap I use different apps. A few years ago I used Superimpose and now I often use iColorama. I love this apps because it offers me so many editing possibilities. But I also use Snapseed for the same reason or Leonardo. Diana is fun, Enlight is fabulous.
What is your favorite app for overlapping layers in your editing work? I asked the MAG artists on MAG MobileArtGroup Facebook and there are the answers here.
Eliza Badoiu is a great artist who has participated in many international exhibitions. She has won prestigious awards and she’s considered one of the major mobile artists.
She has her roots in Greece but lives in Romania. She has participated in group and solo exhibition since 2015. Her works have been exhibited in England, France, Italy, Portugal, Hungary, Latin America, California and Canada. She took part as a juror in “The Beauty Myth” Exhibition, a large art exhibition of mobile artists in Milan (May 2018).
Eliza Badoiu now takes part in the MAG section dedicated to interviews with mobile artists.
“PICTORIALISM is the name given to an international style and aesthetic movement that dominated photography during the later 19th and early 20th centuries. There is no standard definition of the term, but in general it refers to a style in which the photographer has somehow manipulated what would otherwise be a straightforward photograph as a means of “creating” an image rather than simply recording it. Typically, a pictorial photograph appears to lack a sharp focus (some more so than others), is printed in one or more colors other than black-and-white (ranging from warm brown to deep blue) and may have visible brush strokes or other manipulation of the surface. For the pictorialist, a photograph, like a painting, drawing or engraving, was a way of projecting an emotional intent into the viewer’s realm of imagination.
Pictorialism as a movement thrived from about 1885 to 1915, although it was still being promoted by some as late as the 1940s. It began in response to claims that a photograph was nothing more than a simple record of reality, and transformed into an international movement to advance the status of all photography as a true artform.”
