Digital Creativity

In the realm of art creation, digital technologies have gained immense popularity among artists worldwide, with digital art finding favor among collectors. However, a common misconception persists, often relegating digital artists to merely possessing “smart ideas,” rather than crafting genuine works of art.

Does this perception apply universally or specifically to a particular place?

“This misconception, I believe, is prevalent throughout the digital art realm. Italy, my current abode, serves as a prime example. The perception that digital art is somehow less valuable than other art forms is intensified by our rich historical legacy. For centuries, an artist’s worth was solely evaluated based on their practical skills, with scant regard for the creative concepts underpinning the artwork itself.”

How do you view the comparison between digital art and past artistic movements?

“I genuinely believe that our attitude towards art remains unchanged from the past. The only transformation lies in the medium of communication. There exists a continuous thread connecting futurism, dadaism, collage art, and constructivism, leading up to the artistic movements of the 1960s, such as kinetic art. The pursuit of interaction with innovative mediums is an intrinsic facet of our artistic exploration. It is not news that artists of bygone eras yearned for these engagements long before our own time.”

Art does not aim to depict new entities, but rather, to depict in novel ways.
