The Exhibition

“Pasharapainte”?

“Pasharapainte” is a coined word combined with “Pasha” (an onomatopoeia of shutter sound) and “Paint”, from the concept of this exhibition – collaborations of photographers and painters.

Preparation Process

The preparation process of this exhibition took all year long for some photographers and an event manager.
They took a photo of each seasons at first, to make seeds of inspiration for painters.

After they took and shared their photos to I and other painters, we did our stuff based on the inspiration and imagination from them.

How I Made

3D sculptures

Firstly, I made a 3D sculpture model mainly with Zbrush or Blender, sometimes Forger for iPhone.
It was fun, but I needed to take care about the model’s resolution not too detailed or too thin. Because if the model has a part which is too thin, it will be fragile or be broken in the printing process.
(Sorry for not taking any captures for now!)

Once sculpting process finished, I optimised the models with an another tool Meshmixer, to order at a 3D printing company which has high-end 3D printers.

How I painted On Them (Timelapse Videos)

After waiting for delivery of 3D printed models (for a week – 10 days in usual), a traditional phase had begun.

The painting process is quite simple – take some Liquitex acrylics, just paint on these sculptures made with nylon materials.
I put here some timelapse videos.
