Peak Systems’ popular mobile photography app, Diptic, has partnered with iPhoneArt.com (IPA) and Autodesk to produce the LA Mobile Arts Festival 2012 (LA MAF), where award-winning mobile artists from around the globe will show off their latest creative works.
Diptic was the industry’s first mobile app to focus on creating diptych and triptych images. The app allows users to tell a story with their photos by creating sequences, sectioning imagery, and juxtaposing contrasting images.
“Diptic is a fantastic tool that has helped pushed mobile art forward,” said iPhoneArt (IPA) Co-Founder and LA MAF Producer, Daria Polichetti. “It brings an ancient art form (the triptych) into the digital age, allowing artists to create split-screen works that go far beyond what you might expect. The LA MAF will be a great space to show off the truly innovative creations that are being generated by many of the best artists in the mobile art world today.”
Daria Polichetti added, “We are always looking for companies to partner with who share our vision, and who want to give something back to the artists responsible for the increasing success of the mobile art movement. So we are honored to have Diptic as our partner and look forward to seeing the results.”
The LA MAF event is Santa Monica Art Studios’ (SMAS) first-ever mobile arts exhibition showcasing interactive mobile artistry. SMAS is a major mecca for contemporary art and design in the Los Angeles area, located close to Silicone Beach — a new hub for mobile app and technology development.
“We are thrilled to partner with the LA MAF,” said John Sloat, president and CEO of Peak Systems. “Mobile art is an exciting and rapidly evolving art form, and we are proud to support an event that features the work of talented artists who are leading this movement.”
