Cellfish Media Provides International Fusion Painters Innovative Tool to Express Themselves Collectively

NEW YORK --, the online mobile entertainment portal, announced today that it has partnered with an international art workshop, led by teaching artists Olivier di Pizio and Gonzalo Belmonte of the Ateliers des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris, to create the first-ever mobile-generated collective artwork on its Fusion Art channel (

The workshop will bring together 20 French and American painters to create a provocative experience through art collaboration. Di Pizio and Belmonte have applied this unusual collective approach to studio work for over 15 years, creating work based on exchange and fusion. Each participating artist provides ephemera from his or her own life -- photographs, documents, and other items of personal significance -- and uses them as a part of the sharing and creation process.

For the first time, these artists also will be using camera phones to populate a collective media blog on in real time. Internet users will be able to access this intimate look at the workshop on, as well as receive the artists' creations instantaneously on their cell phones by clicking on the "subscribe" button on The collective digital creation will be displayed at an exhibition at the FIAF Gallery in New York, July 16-27.

"We wanted to offer to the most innovative of all audiences -- artists -- to see how they leverage our technology to create new forms of expression and communication," said Fabrice Sergent, CEO of Cellfish Media. "Their work will provide Internet users with a first glimpse of what we believe will become the ultimate tool for instantaneous collective expression."

Cellfish Media, a pioneer and leader in original mobile content creation and distribution in Europe and North America, said it envisions applying this new digital experience to larger scale projects, such as festivals, concerts, public displays and fashion shows.
