KAMPALA - Technology influences the way of life. And art, being one of life’s biggest facets, is not exempted, for, like many things, art has evolved with the advancement of technology.

In today’s world where many things can be accomplished on just a click of a phone, it was fascinating to see youth create art pieces on their phones.

The contest, which was courtesy of the ‘Stylus’ App on the Infinix NOTE6 mobile, attracted various artists drawing portraits on their phone in a fun ambiance. Five artists stood out and competed among themselves.

The event, dubbed Campus X Club, was a party where art lovers and digital freaks converged to interact and have fun. Eats and drinks were pretty. Music capped the ambiance for folks to groove the afternoon away.

Dance and music performances from youth entertained revellers. Urban TV’s comedian Tumu Siime was the icing on the cake, unleashing a buffet of jokes to tickle everyone.

“This is the future of art. We no longer need art books, pencils, and crayons to make art pieces with this kind of technology,” he explained, describing the technology as spectacular.

Other participants won various goodies like power banks, wireless earphones, Bluetooth speakers, table lamps, and smartwatches.
