Ink art tribute to Oriental culture with public interactive installation
What happens if someone told you that there is a pen that can change its colors and paint 3D images on an electronic screen? United Overseas Bank (UOB) Art in Ink Exhibition 2019 featuring “The Huge Brush Ink,” a special digital interactive ink-less brush created by Victor Wong, reveals the answer to that question.
Since the official opening of the Art Gallery of United Overseas Bank (China) in Shanghai last year, this year’s exhibition is focusing on the representation of oriental culture especially in ink art.
Wong’s “The Huge Brush Ink” gives visitors the opportunity to create their own ink artwork.
You can select the style and color of the ink strokes via an interactive panel and use it to control the huge hanging brush over a LED screen on the floor to create your artwork.
After you have finished drawing, you can take a photo of your finished artwork.
The interactive artwork installation aims to enhance public’s interests and understanding of contemporary ink art.
If you enjoy traditional ink artworks, the exhibition displays award-winning artworks from overseas pioneering Chinese ink artists such as Chen Wen Hsi, Fan Chang Tien and Lim Tze Peng.
The exhibition also features contemporary winning artworks from the annual UOB Ink in Art Awards.
Date: Through October 25 (Closed on Mondays), 9:30am-5:30pm
Venue: UOB Art Gallery
Address: 116 Yincheng Rd, Pudong New Area
