Digital art is growing: Artists talk

Digital art continues to grow day by day. Stating that the artist should be open to innovations, Painter Ahmet Özel emphasized the importance of the certification system. Özel stated that the spirit of the work cannot be felt in digital art. Graphicist Demet Koca, on the other hand, stated that digital art and graphic design are in the elbow theme and drew attention to the fact that this change in art is also explained in the lessons.

Digital art is growing: Artists talk

With the developing technology, the way of production and distribution of art has also changed. With the impact of digitalization, the crypto art market is growing rapidly. Artworks sold with NFT, ie unchangeable money, are breaking records. Recently, an artist's digital collage in jpg format was sold for $ 69.4 million. Painter Ahmet Özel and Graphic Designer Demet Koca, who have had numerous solo exhibitions abroad and in Turkey, evaluated the certification system by interpreting the effects of digitalization on art.

SPECIAL: WE SHOULD BE OPEN TO INNOVATION

Stating that the Internet has brought about great changes in art as in every field, Painter Ahmet Özel from Istanbul Gelisim University said: “I have received training in canvas and peeling painting and learned its history. I think the most important feature of artists is that they are open to innovations. By innovation, I mean not only material but also conceptual clarity. If the digital age is responding to the artist, we must underline him. We are in a period where digital art can be bought with crypto money. If we can make the recipient feel the sense of uniqueness and ownership in this method as well, if the certification system is being formed, why not, we should be open to this as well.”

IT'S IMPORTANT TO BE CERTIFIED

Özel added: “How do we put our signature on an important work and say "it belongs to me". When selling the work or showing it in any exhibition, a sense of ownership is created through our name. As long as it is the same in the digital environment, there is no problem. I did not make such an attempt, but I exhibited our works on social media. Those who see, like, and want to buy the work reach us on social media.”

“THE SPIRIT OF THE WORK CANNOT BE FEELED IN DIGITAL”

Pointing out that it is more valuable to be in touch with the works despite the new period, Özel said: “I think that an environment that will make the spirit of the works feel digital has not yet been created. There are shortcomings at that point”

KOCA: ART IS A COMMUNICATION LANGUAGE

Describing the effects of digitalization on the sector and the new world order in the lessons, Graphic Designer Demet Koca said, “With the developing technologies, the digitalization of art has become inevitable. People express themselves with art from antiquity to the present day. Actually, art is the language of communication. It is very common for art to exist through digital media in this fluid, technological and speed-dominated field. Graphic design is a form of communication that completely appeals to the industry, when technology is involved, the industry began to exist in this way.”

DIGITIZED ART HAS CLOSE SONTACT WITH GRAPHIC DESIGN

Koca added: “Digitalized art has an elbow touch with graphic design. The graphic design industry is directly affected by digitalization. You can follow whatever is related to art anywhere in the world and reach it quickly in a spaceless, timeless and mass media. In fact, the works you produce are spreading digitally to a wide audience. You express your presence better, there is no limit. There is no censorship in the digitalization of art and design. The business area in graphic design is quite wide, and when digitalization is added, it makes a great contribution to people.”

TO CATCH UP WITH THE TIME IS A MUST

Pointing out that the content of the lessons he teaches to the students also changed, Koca said: “We have to catch up with the age, technology. We recommend our students who take the art design course to be innovative, to follow creativity and technology from the beginner level to the end. However, we explain that they will be so successful. There is technology and digitalization in the education we provide. With this method, it is also possible for the artist to earn and increase his income.”
