Fine art gallery showcases iPad art

Local art gallery Fountain Fine Art is displaying work created on an iPad as part of its current Winter exhibition. The digital pieces feature scenes from the Welsh countryside.

Typically, fine art is associated with works made using a wet medium such as paint, but the art being displayed is created digitally.

The artist, Joseph Anthony Connor, walks around the countryside and then paints the scenery.

As he says on his blog, “Using drinking water to paint and transporting wet artwork off a mountain is undesirable. Then I discovered one can paint well outside on an Ipad and I started to paint and publish digital art via Twitter.”

You can see the work at Fountain Fine Art’s Winter exhibition, which is running until 31 December.
