Mutoh Belgium has announced it will be partnering with Fotolia for the third season of Fotolia’s TEN Collection Campaign (www.tenbyfotolia.com).
The creative, digital and educational TEN project created by Fotolia in 2011 aims to democratise digital art. Every two months, an internationally renowned photographer and an equally renowned graphics artist create a unique piece of art in which they expose their vision of the future. These artists have never met or worked together previously. They are uniting to share the artistic know-how that brought them international recognition.
Each of the created works of art is released bi-monthly on the TEN Collection website and made available for free for a period of 24 hours for web users and graphics designers to download the layers, graphics elements and style effects.
Each release is followed by a contest, whereby professionals and amateurs can submit their own interpretations of the digital works of art, thereby challenging the artists. The next work of art, a collaboration between designer Mateusz Chmura and photographer Lucia Giacani, will become available on May 10th. On the 10th of July, September and November, the other files will be available as a free download for 24 hours from www.tenbyfotolia.com.
“Mutoh is very pleased to support the Fotolia TEN Collection project, which promotes innovation and artistic expression around the globe,” says Nick Decock, Mutoh Belgium’s commercial marketing manager. “Many Mutoh wide-format printer users regularly use Fotolia royalty free images for high quality outputs for various applications such as sign & display, photo reproductions and soft signage. At Mutoh we are also using Fotolia XXL images for our wide format printer demonstrations.”
“There is a nice link between Fotolia and Mutoh’s activities. Whereas Fotolia aims at democratising digital art, part of Mutoh’s philosophy is to support art projects to demonstrate the quality of our printers and at the same time to introduce the potential of wide format digital printing to a wide variety of artists and professional photographers,” concludes Nick Decock.
