Affinity Photo: The new powerful alternative to photoshop

the new powerful alternative to photoshop

A software firm Serif has just launched ‘Affinity Photo’, touted as a new and powerful alternative to the oldest Adobe Photoshop. Serif isn’t aiming to just replicate Photoshop, or create a cut-down version.

They describe it as “the fastest, smoothest, most precise, professional image editing software” and it is designed for professional photographers and retouchers. You can download the beta of this program for free (only available for Mac)

Said Ashley Hewson, managing director of Serif in an interview with Creative Bloq, “Photoshop is an amazing piece of software. But the problem is, it’s built on 25-year-old architecture. When that architecture was being created, Adobe couldn’t have anticipated the incredible developments we’ve seen in computers since. Which means that they’re now struggling to adapt Photoshop to take advantage of modern computing power.”

David Cerny’s babies will be moved from Prague to Australia

Celebrated Prague artist to exhibit in Australia for the first time at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2014



Travelling all the way from Prague, David ?erný’s internationally renowned and much loved fibreglass, Babies will be installed and unveiled at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi on Friday October 31 at Marks Park.
With each figure 2.4 metres high and over 3 metres long, these figurative pieces are striking in size and form and will be a definite hit with the general public for their personality and flair.

This is the first time the celebrated artist from Prague has exhibited in Australia. ?erný’s Babies project, were first presented in 1994 at the Chicago Museum of Modern Art, followed by appearances in various other major cities including London. The Tower Babies crawling up one of the Prague’s most prominent landmarks the Žižkov TV Tower are without a doubt the most visible and highly recognised sculptures in this series of work.  A Czech sculptor,  David ?erný is well known for his controversial and flamboyant sculptural works including painting the Prague memorial Russian tank bubble-gum pink shortly after the revolution in what was then Czechoslovakia; and his full scale double-decker London bus doing push-ups during the London Olympics.

"It is wonderful to have ‘The Babies’ in Sydney, overlooking Bondi beach", says David Handley, Founding Director of the exhibition.
"Ever since David shot to fame with his pink tank we’ve wanted him to exhibit his work at Bondi. The moment ‘The Babies’ arrived on site they’ve seemed intriguing to passers-by and brought a smile to many a face."
"Due to a delay with European customs and then the storms at sea, the arrival of the Babies has been delayed until today."
Sculpture by the Sea hope for David ?erný to be a visiting artist of the exhibition in the next year or two.

Cheap Street Poster Art Festival – 2nd edition in Italy


Cheap, the festival exclusively dedicated to street poster art, is now in its 2nd edition. The festival is scheduled to take place from May 1 to May 10 in the urban public spaces of four different neighborhoods in the city of Bologna, Italy. The core identity of the festival revolves around bringing artists’ creations into outlying areas and collaborating closely with local administrations and city residents; Cheap takes on the challenge of promoting urban renewal through creative efforts involving the use of paper, the central element of poster art.

Unlike last year’s edition, this year’s festival will focus exclusively on urban spaces and develop along two main lines: on one hand, it will host a series of site-specific interventions by Italian and international artists with extensive experience in the street poster art scene invited by the festival organizers; on the other hand, the festival is issuing an open call, which can be viewed at, targeting not only street artists but also illustrators, photographers and graphic artists with an invitation to engage with the paper medium and poster format.

1,050 square meters of paper and 112 liters of glue used, 125 artists selected through the 2013 Open Call for Artists: these figures from the first edition of Cheap illustrate the high level of participation by artists from numerous countries, both in and outside of Europe.

Just like the first edition, artists are welcome to participate in the 2014 edition individually or as part of a group, proposing from one to three projects. All work must be exclusively designed in black and white and can be created using various techniques: vector graphics, illustration and photography. Applicants are requested to send files with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and maximum dimensions of 70×100 cm. All proposed artwork must be received by the Cheap organizers no later than midnight on April 10th, 2014.
