What is digital art?

Written By On 10 November 2016

Paved with sculpting, sketching, painting, woodwork and so much more, the road we know as ‘Art’ is an unending avenue of imagination, exploration and reflection all at once. Imagine, now, the exponential increase of opportunities to express ourselves as we welcome a new form of creativity: ‘Digital Art’.

First question: is it really that new? Hands up if you remember the good old days when we would claim the PC for ourselves, for ‘work’ of course, and within a few minutes we would see one of these on our screens:

Ok, so some of us really had fun and others of us had no clue what we were doing, but we enjoyed it. As time passed, we applied more thought, and we tried sticking to 2-3 colours, even if we couldn’t get the shapes drawn correctly:

Then we evolved a little more, and used preset shapes to create more sophisticated masterpieces:

And today we look back so sheepishly at those creations: why? Because we have accomplished digital artists like Cean Herzfield, who are capable of producing digital images like this:

Of course there is now far more sophisticated software available and we can generate house plans, digital sketches, renders and so much more, but the age of digital art is upon us and, while some may argue that it isn’t ‘real art’, it’s certain that some pieces are worth us taking a moment to admire.

Translating digital work back into your physical space is also easier than ever; chat to the Printwild team about how to create acrylics or stunning box frames out of your, or our professional artists’, digital artwork.

Fast, friendly and professional service. From placing the order online to reciving the order, which only took 5 days, I was updated regularly on my order throughout the process. The canvas prints and faceblocks are excellent quality. I highly recommend PrintWild, if your a professional photographer or just want to print some family pics. They are the best! Keep up the great work!

Thank you Printwild for helping me keep and display my memories. Printwild have such a user friendly website and the ordering process was so easy, simply upload your images.I was kept in the loop throughout the entire ordering process so knew when my photos were edited, being printed and ready. The customer service is amazing and the staff are super helpful. All my photos were sent for met to proof before they were printed and i was able to keep some text on one of my images as well. The courier was quick and i was given tracking details to follow my order. The photos arrived and WOW! The magnatots look like glass tiles and the quality of print on both the magnets and photoblocks is crystal clear. i was able to unpack and hang my photoblocks, which i'm now addicted to, straight away. Such wonderful ways of displaying lots of photos in a small space. i love it! Can't wait to put in my next order

As a pro photographer having shot around 500 weddings, it’s extremely important that our brides are happy with their Canvas photos. Every bride as well as other clients have praised the quality of all the products supplied by Printwild 💕 Besides the great products and excellent services, the staff from the top and across all the spectrums, are an absolute delight to deal with and make one feel special. Having dealt with Printwild for over a decade I highly recommend them.
