If you are into art, or just into doing something with your hands, you can always find new activities to try, and digital art is one of them.

You can do everything with only one instrument, photo montage, drawing, designing…

The cost to do anything is the biggest disadvantage. You either need a computer and a graphic tablet, or a tablet with a good app like Photoshop, InDesign, or Procreate. It’s not like a paper pencil and a white sheet of paper, but it can be like it if you decide so. One of the goodness of digital art is that you can imitate most utensils and materials,you can also mix different media. You don’t just try digital art as something new; you start digital art and then can try everything on it.

In a modern world where technology has become ubiquitous and is now essential in most of our activities, it is no surprise technology also made its way in the art world and is given more and more consideration everyday. 

Crypto art also seems to be a good substitute to keep creating and exhibiting during these pandemic times. On March 11, the artist Beeple beat the record of highest price ever paid for digital art, the project “Everydays: The First 5000 Days” was purchased for $69 million, opening the way for a whole new art world.
