The Impact of Digital Art on Traditional Arts


New technologies have affected all fields, including the arts, especially contemporary arts that embrace modernity. The rapid development of digital technology had a great impact on all types of arts, including traditional arts. It also had a great influence on the artist himself. This development has led to an escalation in breaking the boundaries between fine arts, new media art, technology, and commerce, resulting in a form of tension. We find ourselves asking, does this type of art require basic artistic skills similar to the original art? What are the differences and how it diverges and affects artists positively or negatively? Are traditional arts preserving their artistic identity or have they merged with the latter? Can digital art exceed or replace traditional art? Due to the ease of consuming, publishing, and sharing this type of art, the artist felt the need to keep up with this phenomenon and found himself forced to follow the rapid development and keep pace with the requirements of the times. What led the artist to change the content of the art medium or even develop or create a new one? This intersection between art and technology has led to new artistic innovations, as the process of creativity lies in constant renewal.
