On rediscovering painting

When I was a child, I was once asked to create a painting for a church. I don’t remember exactly what the event was, but I ended up creating a painting of a huge colorful mosque. After secondary school, I followed an art class and during my studies in Computer Science and Engineering, I also once took up a painting class. Although painting hasn’t been a constant hobby of mine, I do return to it from time to time. In the past year, I did quite a few paintings from photographs, as gifts for friends or friends of friends.

LEDWall prototype 1

A year or so ago, my partner and I said to eachother “Wouldn’t it be cool to create a LED wall for our living room?”. We then set about to buy an Arduino and some required components for the first prototype. It took a while for us to actually get started, but my phone tells me that on the 7th of June I sent my technogeeky friends a photo over WhatsApp of my breadboard experiment:
