The TEN collection by Fotolia is a collection of digital art which gives internet users the opportunity to download the work of famous international artists for a small sum (5 euros) in PSD format. The project began in 2011 with the idea of making 10 pieces of digital artwork from 10 different countries available in 10 months. Each art piece is only made available for 24 hours on the website. The first four pieces to be uploaded on to the website received over 110,000 downloads in 24 hours, showing just how much of a success the project has become. The project hints at a new, wider market for digital artwork through the targeting of internet downloaders, marking a turning point in the availability of digital artwork in high quality, worldwide.
The latest artwork, part of season 2 of TEN by Fotolia, to be made available for download by Fotolia is by London based freelance designer and illustrator, Mike Harrison. The artist works in multiple areas, including web design, typography, illustration, 3D, motion graphics and photography.
Fotolia, in general, is a far-reaching photo database featuring over 22 million photos, illustrations and HD videos, allowing users to browse and buy images on the database for a small fee (around one euro or less). Fotolia boasts partnerships with some of the most renowned names in the digital world, such as Adobe, Microsoft Office and Corel.
