Ogale talks about how maximum of his time is spent having a pipe dream. “I let my mind wander till an idea interrupts me,” he says, explaining the seeds of his video animations that play out his daydreams, through which chairs stand on partitions as though they had been flooring, and human legs poke out of snail shells. These concepts, earlier than they take a visible shape, are penned down via Ogale at the iPad Pro’s Notes app. “It could be a poem, some bullet points or a long letter,” he says. “Writing is a way for me to build a world in which the visuals will live.”
Malhotra talks about how it is Apple Pencil that will get her at the approach sketching at the iPad Pro. She says that the undo button will get a large number of love from her. “I’m too in love with the undo button. It isn’t about being afraid of mistakes, but being able to make improvements as I go along and being able to create my best work. Working digitally allows me room to play around, without a loss of accuracy.” She also uses Procreate “for the intuitive sketching, and the new hover feature helps for an even faster workflow.” Then there may be Artivive, which she makes use of to create animations and AR to convey illustrations to existence.
Ogale refers to himself as a “technophobe” in a previous life but now says that the iPad Pro, Adobe Suite and Procreate are something he can’t do without. The Apple Pencil is something he uses to sketch and color. He then animates them on Adobe Premiere Pro.“I wish someone told me three years ago that technology is not as rigid and unfriendly as I thought it was!” he says, laughing. “It has become such a support system — iPad Pro’s display is so sensitive, it feels like sketching on paper.”
Desai, on the other hand, is what one would call a hi-tech artist. His studio in Kolkata has all the tools for his various creative enterprises — synthesizers and devices for music production, mixing and mastering; a 3D printer; and a workbench for soldering and engineering electronics. He says that his approach is exploring and experimenting. “Whenever I find myself stuck with one process, I can change what I am working on,” says the artist who is never working on only one thing at any given time.
He says that he uses the digital art medium just like he would go with the traditional art medium. “It is absolutely the same as working with paint — I go into it with intention, and just like painting there is a lot of room to play with chance.” Using tools like Processing on iPad Pro, which he calls a “versatile tool sketchbook,” the artist flexes his technical and imaginative muscle tissues, generating laws and inputs for his machine to supply dynamic works of art, greater than the sum in their portions.
Desai could also be adept at the usage of particular apps which are unique to the iPad. It additionally is determined by the LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensor at the iPad Pro. He makes use of LiDAR tech to seize and generate 3-D scans of areas, as an alternative of flat images, he has been taking to the streets of Kolkata, making a three-d truth in parallel to the ‘actual’ timber, taxis and construction facades.
The 3 artists will exhibit their works created at the iPad Pro on the 2023 India Art Fair.
