"Cross Hatch Experiment" by J.D. Jarvis

"Digital is not here to put an end to anything. Rather it is here to expand all things, to combine and to make more things attainable. For the artist, it is the edgiest work of all; the biggest, most exciting challenge in a long history of the synthesis between technology and hand and mind and heart."

- J.D. Jarvis

In this age of rapidly changing technology, artists don’t just think of traditional mediums of oil paints and canvas, or of marble and clay. Art has never been restricted to a single medium and artists will express themselves in the most surprising ways.

Join us as we explore digital art in Masterpieces, featuring new and exciting work from artists all over Asia. Created on tablets and new digital media, these artists combine cutting edge technologies with the emotion of the human heart.
