Hart shares art with world via app
Australia artist David Hart already has a large following but now his works have gone global.
A free application called Daily Inspirations is now available to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch owners, giving them access to 31 images of Mr Hart’s best-selling paintings, including his iconic dragonfly series.
With them are a series of inspirational quotes penned by the artist himself.
A paper desk calendar version of Daily Inspirations is already one of Mr Hart’s most popular gift lines and he said he was thrilled to see an electronic version set to reach a global audience.
But the package went much deeper than beautiful paintings, the son of celebrated Australian artist Pro Hart said.
“The actual inspirations are what it is all about,” said Mr Hart, whose works stem from his experiences growing up in outback Australia and have been displayed throughout the world.
The quotes were designed to lift peoples’ spirits and were the result of his own experiences, the experiences of friends and his general observations on life. The idea for the application came from a friend who started the Sunshine Coast-based company iApps, which specialises in the design of applications for new Apple technologies.
“As far as we know, it’s the first of its kind,” Mr Hart said. “The hardcopy version sells in our galleries for about $20.”
As well as images and inspirations, the application includes a biography, games and the opportunity to purchase further images in packs of 10.
Along with the release of the application, Mr Hart also launched his first DVD series, David Hart Tips and Tricks.
In the first instalment, he shares his techniques of painting across a broad range of mediums.
And Mr Hart said there were already plans to release more applications and DVDs.
“We are already working on different stuff,” he said.
David Hart will continue his relationship with iApps to produce a series of applications including David Hart Faith which will reflect his faith-based upbringings.
