Digital Art 365- What Kind of Genres are there in Digital Art?

Digital Art 365Digital Art 365- Digital art is a category of art that has been greatly enhanced and has developed into much greater depth. The beginning of the 1990s was when this phenomenon caught on, and everyday people began to be exposed to digital art. Digital art has expanded so much that presently there are genres that include fantasy, science fiction, abstract, digital landscape, and others.

Modern digital art comprises of genres like magic realism, psychedelic/pop-art, post-surrealism, photorealism, and many more. The point is that digital art has become so highly used that we can now break it down into numerous categories and sub-categories.

Digital Art 365
Digital art 365- Digital art has been evolving since it became known in the 1950s. Scientists applied mathematical rules to their computer programming, causing the computer to translate an array of images on the screen. By having these computers output these visual patterns, a revolution of digital art began to surface. Digital art merged the new technology with art. However, computer technology during this era was restricted and narrow. It would take years later for digital art to become more widely used in our society. Thus, the 1950s was still the beginning of something remarkable with computers and the art you can create on it.

Digital Art 365Digital Art 365- There are two kinds of tools to use when using digital art on the computer: 2D and 3D. Each one has different programs and software you can use to generate your images.

For beginners, two dimensional tools that you can start out with are GIMP, Painter, and Photoshop. These programs allow you to draw or paint on a flat surface like you would if you were creating something on a sheet of paper.

Once you master the 2D digital art, you can work your way to 3D digital art tools. These tools specialize in the areas of all-around 3-D tools, special purpose 3D tools, and landscape 3D tools.
Digital Art 365Digital Art 365- You see digital art everywhere. It can be found in the movies, on the internet, and in everyday magazines. But just what is it? How does it actually work? Here is a little background to help you better understand.

Basically, digital art is art that is digitally created on a computer. There a few ways you can create this. It can be solely computer generated or you can scan a drawing or photograph and manipulate the object through a vector graphic program. Software programs allow you to create 3-D graphics by designing imagery to create real life shapes, objects and scenes.

I first heard of Jenny Holzer when she was chosen to represent the U.S. at the Venice Biennale back in 1990, before she started making her signature projections. I can’t vouch for how these 1996 projections (in Florence) looked in person, but as black & white photos, they’re pretty arresting.

As a little girl, I was fascinated by the shapes and colors I could create with my spirograph. Dutch designer Edward van Vliet may have the same affinity. His sushi furniture collection for the Italian manufacturer, Moroso, showcases a colorful patchwork of fabrics distinguished by these unmistakably intricate and symmetrical marks.


30 March 2009





On Sunday, a sleepy, somewhat overcast day, I took a stroll through Soho, and noticed a distinct resurgence of graffiti in the neighborhood, mostly on shuttered storefronts and a couple of abandoned construction sites. Doorways, in particular, seemed to be the target , some obviously older, well-burnished surfaces, while others targets of more recent marks (and signals?) of the times.


30 March 2009


This may be the most beautiful bar graph ever created. Jer Thorp, an artist and former geneticist, creates software-based images called visualizations. The image, above, illustrates how often the word ‘organic’ appears on the pages of the New York Times between the years 1981 and 2009. Each blade of grass represents a one-month period, showing a gradual rise in the use of the term over the last two decades.


30 March 2009


I liked the juxtaposition of this Yoko Ono poster on my wall with the roses on the table below it, taken with my iPhone. I seem to be inexplicably drawn to tilted shots, objects (and life?) on the bias.


30 March 2009


The Dutch design collective, Droog (‘dry’ in Dutch), has been designing quirky and unexpectedly winsome furniture and objects since 1993. Now, they’ve finally arrived in America. The first Droog retail shop in North America opened last week on Greene Street in Soho.

Design for the Art Museum Strongoli in Calabria, Italy, by Austrian architects Coop Himmelb(l)au. Situated atop the ‘Motta Grande’ hill overlooking the city, the edifice “is a composition of three main elements: the emblematic, cone-shaped construction with the entrance orientated towards the city, while the cantilevering restaurant at the opposite end of the building offers a panoramic terrace facing the sea in the east…both linked by a two-story exhibition volume.”

Since 2005, the Brooklyn-based textile studio, elastiCo, has been silkscreening the top Google searches for each calendar year onto decorative throw pillows. Each year’s version is signed and numbered in an edition of 250.


27 March 2009


After a protracted and arduous process, Optima was chosen as the official typeface for the World Trade Center Memorial, on which the names of every victim will be inscribed. The New York Times’ slide show revisits the devil in this detail.


27 March 2009


Stephen Shore has been taking photographs of the American landscape since the 1970’s. This one was taken along Route 97 in Oregon in 1973, and is included in Into the Sunset: Photography’s Image of the American West, at the Museum of Modern Art. The show opens today.

Nine Breathtaking and Inspiring Pieces of Public Art


Why should art remain cooped up in museums? Art should be seen by as many people as possible, so as to inspire as many viewers as it can. Public art is the act of erecting intriguing, usually extravagant pieces of art in places of high population. From paintings and sculptures to art made of lights, public art helps to beautify cities and please all those who travel through. Below are nine of the most amazing pieces of public art ever constructed.

I See What You Mean

This massive sculpture represents a blue bear peering into an office building’s window. This bear could quite possibly be one of the biggest distractions for those working on the floor he is staring into! The sculpture stands 40 feet high at the Colorado Convention Center and is quite a popular area piece.

Device to Root Out Evil

Entitled “A Device to Root Out Evil,” this piece of artwork stands as an upside-down church in Glenbrow, Canada. The church used to be displayed in Vancouver (as shown in the first image), but controversy over it blocking the ocean view of where it stood caused it to be shipped out. The design is rather controversial, yet it remains a beautiful piece of captivating public art, and complaints about it in it’s new location have remained minimum.

The environmentally friendly solar-art piece, “Co2LED” no longer stands where it once did in Arlington, Texas. The piece was once a field of 522 bright, solar powered LED lights. These LEDs would charge in the sun all day, and then illuminate the night once the sun went down. The best part of the entire project? Once it was torn down, the entire piece was recycled so as not to waste a single piece!

The New York City Waterfalls

Presented by the Public Art Fund, the New York City waterfalls are man-made pieces of art that recreart the look of waterfalls around the East River. The waterfalls themselves are designed to look like scaffolding, which is a common look for the city. Perhaps the most beautiful waterfall is erected under the Brooklyn bridge and creates the illusion that the water is flowing out of the bridge itself! Visitors to New York can now take boat tours around the river to view all of the waterfalls up close.

Cloud Gate

Inspired by the look of Liquid Mercury, artist Anish Kapoor created his public sculpture “Cloud Gate.” The sculpture is made of high polished stainless steel, and it’s mirror finish reflects the city’s skyline like a giant fun house mirror! Currently, this popular sculpture sits as the center piece of AT&T Plaza in Milennium Park, Chicago Illinois.

The Urban River

The Urban River is a one kilometer long stretch of road painted bright blue to give off the appearance of a river in the middle of a city! The blue road was constructed using 4,000 lieters of paint, and was created in memorium of an actual river that once flowed trough it’s location. All along the road, in eight meter high letters, “Water Is Life” is written so as to be read from the sky. The sight is quite beautiful and inspiring to drive along!

Bill Fitz Gibbons Artwork

Prominent street artist Bill Fitz-Gibbons specializes in creating neon-light displays in urban areas. Mundane overpasses come to life with vibrant colors that turn everyday concrete structures into gorgeous works of art. The effect is make possible by large light projectors that cast the light at just such an angle as to reflect as you see it.

Jeff Koon’s “Puppy”

“Puppy” is a curious and innovative piece by Jeff Koons. The sculpture is made of living flowers on top of wood and stainless steel. Perhaps the most intriguing part of piece is that it features an internal irrigation system to keep the beautiful flowers alive. Puppy is a truly original and breathtaking piece of public art.
