Maybe art will not save the world, but surely it will make it better.
Autore: Giulia Baita
Giulia Baita lives on a beautiful island in the Mediterranean called “Sardinia”.
She has a degree in History of Contemporary Art and she is passionate about painting and drawing.
She is a high exponent of Mobile Art and she participated in many international exhibitions like “Light impressions” (two years in Miami) , Mobile Award Mira” (Porto) and mDAC 2017 (Palo Alto). She also showed some of her photos in two Art Exhibition in her city, Cagliari.
She has collaborate with the jazz composer Marco Testoni about some projects which combined music and art. A video with her pictures was shown in Rome during a concert by Marco Testoni and the Pollock Project group and it always accompanies their concerts.
Other videos (exclusively made with iPhone) were selected and shown at festivals such as MoMo Festival, International Mobile Film Festival, Woman’s Mobile FilmFestival, Los Angels Film Festival.
In March 2017 she founded MAG MobileArtGroup Facebook, MAG Instagram and MAG Twitter.
MAG wants to stimulate and promote Mobile Art as a new contemporary art form.
In March 2018 Giulia Baita organized an exhibition in Cagliari with images of artists from around the world. It called "Mobile Art From All Over The World" and it featured the work of 29 artists (including her). Subsequently she has created a book - catalog of the Exhibition.
This difficult year due to the pandemic still in progress, my artistic activity has not stopped.
I have exhibited one of my works in Genoa, at the Palazzo Ducale, I have curated my website, I have started the production of tutorials published on Instagram, I have organized the NEW LIFE exhibition in Cagliari and I am preparing to present one of my works in Florence for the Biennale of Contemporary Art.
I was also a judge of two major international exhibitions of Mobile Art. One was held in Porto in Portugal and is called MIRA Mobile Prize and the other is called the MDAC Award and was held in Palo Alto (California). It was an honor to be part of the jury and select images from artists and photographers from around the world.
The phenomenon of Mobile Art grows and spreads thanks to social networks, exhibitions, events and workshops that multiply. This “democratic” and “smart” form of expression collects ideas and moods around the world and, thanks to the network, circulates them.
Everyone has a phone, everyone can do Mobile Art. Even if it is not the medium that makes the artist but their head and their heart.
Congratulations to all the artists selected in the MIRA Mobile Prize and MDAC Award!
I am pleased to announce “New Life” Contest. It is the Mobile Art Contest 2021 which will select 25 images for a large exhibition curated by me in Cagliari. Also this year, artists from all over the world are invited to take part in an exhibition that will print and frame 25 images. Afterwards it will be available a catalog with all the selected images.
The theme is “New Life” in reference to a new life that we are about to live after the pandemic. We have been forced to stay closed at home for months, many have had work problems, many have not been able to hug their loved ones who live in other cities for a long time. Now finally there is a more serene air and it seems that the situation is improving. We want to prepare ourselves for a new life in which we will be more free and more responsible for our own life and others’. A new life in which we have learned to respect the environment and live together in a single global village.
Each artist can submit a maximum of four images and a jury will select 25, one per artist. Deadline 10 July. The payment of a fee includes the printing, the frame, the gallery, the brochures.

After filling in all the previous fields and after the payment has been made successfully, send a maximum of 4 images format 4:3 to email@example.com
Dal 13 al 27 Marzo 2021 ho avuto l’onore di esporre una mia opera a Genova, Palazzo Ducale.
La mostra si intitolava “Talk with me” ed era curata dalla dott.ssa Loredana Trestin e dalle sue collaboratrici del gruppo Divulgarti.
Nonostante il periodo difficile per l’arte a causa della pandemia, Palazzo Ducale non ha chiuso le sue porte al pubblico se non in zona rossa e quindi è stato possibile visitare la mostra.
Il tema mi ha spinto a presentare un’opera che mostra proprio la difficoltà di comunicazione in una coppia. Ma l’atmosfera è calda e abbraccia la coppia come a sottolineare che, nonostante le difficoltà, la comunicazione è importante ed è possibile quando ci si vuole bene.
L’ opera ha formato 50×75, stampata su tela e incorniciata con cornice nera a effetto ombra.
One year at home working for school and my artistic activity due to Covid. But the prospect of returning to a “normal” life seems ever closer ..
How many resolutions for this new year, how much desire to do things that have stopped for months.
This photo was taken in Venice, during a trip with my children. I have a wonderful memory of those days .. And today’s photos, moments from the past that come back to visit us, seem so precious to me…
I think we have learned a lot over the course of this year. We have learned to stay more and more connected with close and distant friends. We have learned to be more attentive to our planet and our environment in general. We have learned to consider ourselves as inhabitants of the same global village and what concerns others always concerns me too.
In every experience we must learn and find ‘positive’ aspects and I think the pandemic, in spite of everything, has taught us many things. I hope that from now on our world will be better and we will all be more friends and more supportive.
