The Big Picture Collective Art Project

We would love your drawings to be part of our Collective Art Project : The Big Picture. Participants from all over the world are uploading their drawings and sketches and we are making a large mosaic-panoramic picture from all the drawings. This picture is fully searchable and zoomable, like a Google map. Why should you participate? • We have many plans for the future of the Big Picture art project. Because the project is digital, we will be looking at exhibiting it in art galleries or museums with a mix of printed media and interactive features • We are collaborating with the Artist Network and they will be the first to reveal the Big Picture online once completed. • We are working with partners like Copic markers and Strathmore paper so we will be sending prizes to the most interesting contributions. • We will offer online explorations of the picture based on themes like site seeing, art making, everyday life, inspiration, family, travelling and immigration… We are also thinking about publishing a few books based on those themes. • This is a unique opportunity to share the life stories that are important to you with a wide audience, you can also participate anonymously if you want to. Connect with artists from all other the world through a work of art. Be part of something big! Stay tuned for an exclusive reveal of the completed Big Picture on the Artist’s Network. Deadline: The project will stop once the picture has been filled with drawings, that should take at least one year.
