Kinetic Canvas is an attempt to synergise art and technology, where artists can animate paintings on their drawing canvas to represent a passage of time. We collaborated with a professional artist who works on "nihonga" artwork (artwork that features traditional Japanese techniques) to create a 5 feet by 3 feet art piece for a public exhibition. This paper presents the development process of the artwork, challenges faced by both the artist and the technologist and reflections on the synergetic effort.
