File Conversion: Austin Lee Goes From Ipad to Canvas in a New Show at Postmasters

Alex Greenberger, ARTnews, November 17, 2015

To make his paintings of embracing lovers and running horses, Austin Lee relies on a series of “and thens.” First he makes a drawing on his iPad, and then he exports that sketch to Photoshop, and then he prints the Photoshop mock-up, and then he paints it. And then, sometimes, if he feels the painting doesn’t work, he photographs that work-inprogress, brings it into Photoshop, plays with it a little, prints out the image again, and then repaints it.
