Digital Technology and Art
LASMARA, the organizers of the 2019 edition of the Impart Artists Fair, lived up to their billing as the event successfully showcased the integration of cutting edge technology in every ramification of artistry. The three-day fiesta held from October 25 to 27 at Alpha One, Eko Atlantic, Victoria Island, Lagos resonated its theme, “Art Meets Tech” with the unprecedented infusion of digital technology into art production, promotion and consumption.
From providing the audience specially designed seats and viewing lenses to having them vicariously participate in art creation, the fair presented virtual reality replete with unrivalled innovative trends. Besides the usual display of diverse artworks at exhibitions, the Impart Artists Fair witnessed the convergence of the latest technologically-driven art expressions devoid of the typical cumbersome processes that characterize conventional painting. The fair incorporated modern modes that allowed the audience to interface with interactive walls, viewing lenses, enthralling motion pictures and an E-paint wall – a digital canvas that magically combines with a “spray can” to simplify drawing for non-artists.
