I was honored to be invited by DigiFun Art to participate in the DigiFun Art: Urban Scape Mobile Art Exhibition & Festival at the Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA), South Korea. The art exhibition opened September 22nd and runs to December 13th, 2015. It is on the third floor of the SeMA Central location, Seosomun Main Building, (Project Room 3F) – please visit if you’re in Seoul between now and December 13th.

The exhibition features paintings created on mobile devices, including this one (below) that I painted live at the Smithsonian American Art Museum during their America Now! Innovation in Art event.

It also included a participative interactive installation called “Pixelscape” which you can see here:
