Adobe Brings The 100-Year-Old Brushes Of Edvard Munch To Photoshop
By Izza Sofia, 16 Jun 2017
Adobe has announced an innovative, first-of-its-kind project, titled The Hidden Treasures of Creativity, which will digitally recreate the over 100-year old paint brushes of Edvard Munch to inspire a new generation of master painters.
In collaboration with The Munch Museum in Oslo and award-winning Photoshop brush-maker Kyle T. Webster, Adobe has digitally replicated seven of Munch’s original brushes and made them available in Creative Cloud for Photoshop and Sketch users worldwide.
With the support of the Munch Museum’s conservation experts, Munch’s original brushes were photographed in 360 degrees using ultra-high-resolution cameras, which captured all angles and details to create an accurate three dimensional representation.
The process of turning the data and scans into Photoshop brushes was then performed by Kyle T. Webster. In collaboration with the museum experts, Kyle captured the exact shape and performance attributes of each brush, which are available for download in Photoshop and Sketch from today.
In conjunction with the launch of the new brushes, Adobe is having a competition to encourage digital artists to re-create their own version of Munch’s famous painting. Munch created four different versions of The Scream, so Adobe is encouraging artists to create “The 5th Scream”.
The winner will take home €6,000 as well as have their work displayed at the Munch Museum in Oslo.
