Zoom in on Art!

We spend each day of the month in the confines of our home as the world tries to heal itself from the pandemic. For the first time, we are all experiencing the “New normal”, wherein everything we used to do outside has to be done at home; from working to playing and from exercising to socializing. Also, we have become reliant on the creative works of artists and content creators to keep us busy, entertained and fair-minded. Art heals. It can heal you, it can heal others. That’s why we want the whole world to Zoom in on Art!

From July 18 to August 15 , 2020 (Philippine time), there will be a contest for “Zoom in on Art”. Artists all over the world can share their digital artwork and get a chance to win USD 500 (or PHP 25,000). The artwork with the highest score in line with the criteria will win the cash price. Xiklab Digital has put up this page to highlight the works of our Art Directors and other digital artists all over the World – so they have a way of coping with the situation we’re in, and they get to showcase their art.
