Moulded by The Rise of Digitalisation
Digital art like the traditional visual arts expresses the emotion of the artist about a particular issue, but instead of using physical objects to create it, it uses digital technology.
Digital art can be used for display through art prints or it can be used to support other creations like an article, a book, and many others.
Miroslavo and Digital Art
As a kid, I didn’t have a mobile phone, internet or computer. However, entering my teens, everything changed with the introduction of the internet, computers, websites and the digitalisation of everything.
Starting at the age of 13, I began designing websites and playing with graphics. In high school, we used the internet for pretty much everything, and at university, I began treating it as a career. I found myself in graphic design, illustration and animation. I’m still in these fields today. Over the past 15 years, I have mastered the Adobe Creative Suite. Nowadays, I can make visual imagery, illustrations and various graphic animations, and combine them all together.
The Rise of Blockchain Technology and NFTs
I have been making digital art for quite a long time, to support my articles, for various posters etc. It’s never really been possible to offer it as a product though. It always acted as a support material to something. With the rise of blockchain technology and non-fungible tokens, I can now create digital art and sell it as a unique collectable with an irreplaceable identification number, which cannot be reproduced. This has brought tons of new possibilities and opportunities for me as an artist.
I would still create digital art even if there were no NFTs, but now it’s gained a new dimension and motivation as people now collect digital art as a piece of art, and gone are the days that it’s created only for marketing purposes.
