Digital art - Digital Art
I began to make pictures on computer in 1996. At present day my soft - Corel Photopaint and Fractal Design Painter. When I began to draw with the computer, the concept of the style has disappeared for me (but I have my style in the usual graphic). It seems me, that it is not so bad. I have series of works,which have made on the computer fulfilled in one style , but styles of series are different. Many traditional artists in Russia are sharply against digital art. They consider that it is not art. I consider, that they can not learn to work on the computer. But soon it will pass, I think. While there is not enough information in Russia about computer art, it too prevents understanding of progressiveness of a new method. I think, that computer is the instrument of artist of future.
