Digital Art Demo by Dawud Muhammad
using his iPad app Procreate
Since the winter of 2012 Dawud Muhammad has been “painting” with an iPad exclusively. Over the years he has used a variety of media; pen & ink, acrylic & oil paint, graphite & colored pencil, oil & soft pastels, etc. With exception of few courses in high school Dawud is self taught.
Muhammad says, “The use of a tablet in the creative process has been phenomenal! The technology has caught up with my creative impulse.”
As it relates to his philosophy about art the creative process, he has stated, “All forms of artistice expression are refractivity. Refraction is the turning or bending of any kind of wave, such as a light or sound wave, when it passes from one medium into another. When the musician plays her instrument, the dancers dance or the painter paints, he/she becomes the medium. The living breathing prism bending life waves and revealing its hidden colors.”
Dawud’s work has been exhibited in several galleries in and around the Detroit metropolitan area.
Join us! This demo is open and free to the public.
