A Case Study on Web Artist Bimay’s Digital Painting
This is a case study research based on a graphic-art blogger named “Bimay”. The research includes in-depth interview with the case and all the digital doodle created by her. By collecting interview data and all the doodles, this research tries to figure out her life story and art creating footprint, and to realize environment influences her in terms of motivation and creation. Besides, this research tries to reveal her identity as a public figure, the role she plays in the social media, and the positive impacts she has caused. In the digital web era, every creator can easily upload their own works to any web spaces for public review, which has brought aboutthe emergence of a new type of creators, amateur creators, on a wide range of websites. The case this research tries to study, Bimay, is one of these amateur creators. Whilst she got limited amount of training in art in a cram school. In her childhood, she didn’t receiveprofessional art education in the formal school system. As a non-expert of art, the efforts she paid and the natural talent for art have brought her the outstanding achievements of creating on the Internet. This research departs from discussion on issues of digital art era, naïve art and graphic-art blogger. Based on the above-mentioned references and the data collected from Bimay, I then attemptto analyze how her education background and family life influence her, and to figure out the ideology hidden in her artwork. At the end of this dissertation, I propose some advice for further research in three directions: advice on further research of this case, on research on amateur web creators, and on social art education. This research also encourages rethinking of the definition of naïve art in the hope that there will be further research dedicated to this issue. It is also expected that art education will truly be a part of our daily life one day.
