Welcome to Ewkuks! Our current exhibit is an AR Graffiti Show by international graffiti artist, Fat Heat.
But what is AR?
AR stands for Augmented Reality, which is an interactive experience where the real-world experience is enhanced through technology. As it applies to art, the artwork comes alive in front of your eyes when you incorporate technology to the art.
In order to watch the art come to life, you need to download the LARA app on your phone first.
LARA AUGMENTED REALITY APP and immerse yourself into this interactive experience.
If you open your phone camera and point it individually at the QR Code included in Artwork Images, you will be prompted to download the Lara app from the iTunes or Google Play stores.
If the QR Codes do not work, or you prefer to do it yourself:
App: LARA: Augmented Reality (iTunes & Google Play)
You then can give a try while viewing the artwork full screen on your computer using your smart phone.
“How to Vandalize Vandalism” An augmented and animated solo show by Fat Heat. Inspired by the never-ending war on graffiti, Fat Heat transfers the battle into the safe space of the gallery. His artworks display fictional graffiti’s in familiar settings, however even this domestic environment isn’t able to serve as a guarantee for serenity: it is their unescapable fate to come alive and then become destroyed. All this in front of your eyes. Beware, the attacks will be animated and all damages will stay virtual.
Fat Heat has been making waves as a street artist since 1998, with whole rail cars from Hungary throughout murals in China, and exhibits in the UK. Painting outdoors in a country and in an era that was almost like a stepping stone away from becoming dead silent in terms of urban culture, Fat Heat took the risk and has never looked back.
Fortunately, the environments' inaction gave space for reaction: it resulted in the formation of street artist collaborations, inspired the one of a kind animated mural’s and illustration which aim to associate the offline with the online, the print with the digital, the completed with the perpetual. Rather than getting stuck by the illusions of foolish comparisons, he follows his inner tunes and is working day by day to stay true to his Art. Simply, from his heart.
