Mutoh partners with Fotolia for TEN campaign
Mutoh Belgium has announced its partnership with Fotolia for the third season of Fotolia’s TEN Collection Campaign
TEN is a creative, digital and educational project, which was originally created by Fotolia in 2011, to help democratise digital art. Every two months, an internationally renowned photographer and an equally renowned graphic 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, but unite to share the artistic know-how that has won 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, to enable web users and graphic designers to download the layers, graphics elements and style effects.
Furthermore each such release is followed by a contest, whereby professionals and amateurs can submit their own interpretations of the digital works of art, thus challenging the original artists.
The first work of art in this series, a collaboration between
Mateusz Chmura and Lucia Giacani, was released on 10th May and it will be followed by similar collaborations on 10th July, September and November, which will be available for download, for 24 hours only.
Nick Decock, Mutoh Belgium’s Commercial Marketing Manager commented: “We are delighted to support the Fotolia TEN Collection project, which promotes innovation and artistic expression around the globe.
“Many Mutoh wide-format printer users regularly use Fotolia royalty free images for use in various applications, such as sign and display, photo reproductions and soft signage and at Mutoh, we also use Fotolia XXL images for our wide format printer demonstrations.
He added: “There is a nice synergy between Fotolia’s and Mutoh’s activities, in as much as Fotolia’s aim is to democratize digital art and ours is to support art projects in order to demonstrate the quality of our printers, while also introducing the potential of wide format digital printing to a wide variety of artists and professional photographers.”
