Technology has certainly affected all art mediums, and even commercial printers get to play a part in this constantly changing arena. Throughout history, art changed with the times, and today is no different. Artists now have the ability to create and share works in ways never before possible.
Art as we know it is changing shape, literally. New space-age materials allow for the creation of objects which were never previously thought possible, including everything from printable rocket engines to architecturally sound carbon fiber objects. 3D printers are one example of this kind of technology.
Can a 3D printer be used for art?
3D printing helps artists transform ideas into tangible works of art. Artists from creative and entertainment domains can truly unleash their imagination to create new and exciting objects. 3D printed art models aim to expand design horizons and foster a culture of aesthetic innovation.
The question is, what will art be in the future? Will advances in technology drive it, or will humanity see a return to more traditional mediums? This is an important question, especially when considering how this affects professional printing companies.
3D printers change the way things are made. As stated above, objects which were previously impossible to make can now be realized with this technology. For example, for commercial printers who work in product design, visualizations for meetings and presentations will no longer need to be hand-made scale models; they can simply be printed.
3D printers change the way things are sold. For example, a company creates a product that it wants to sell, but its salespeople have a difficult time bringing samples with them while out on sales calls. Now they can simply print out physical samples that clients can hold in their hands and better see the final product.
What kind of art is trending now?
The most popular art today is commonly referred to as Contemporary Art. Contemporary art encompasses many styles, including Modern, Abstract, Impressionism, Pop Art, Cubism, Surrealism, Fantasy, Graffiti, and Photorealism. In addition, today’s popular mediums include painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, and digital art.
- More Virtual Art Exhibitions
- An Increase in 3D Motion Graphic Design
- Renewed Appreciation for Nature
- Increasing Popularity of Contemporary African Art
- Continued Increase in Street Art
Contemporary art is associated with expression and experimentation. The roots of contemporary art began in the early 1960’s, particularly abstract expressionism. It continues to be popular today and has many different styles, such as Pop Art (Jasper Johns & Andy Warhol) and Graffiti (Keith Haring). Contemporary art can be seen in galleries, films, music videos, advertisements, and broadways shows.
The Internet has had a monumental effect on the distribution of contemporary art. With nearly everybody using some form of social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), sharing art is as easy as a click of a button. Artists can post their work online and it can be seen by millions at any given moment. Art is more accessible than it has ever been, allowing for art to be seen on a global level.
Hopefully, as the future progresses, there will be an increase in artistic education and art appreciation worldwide. Contemporary art will continue to advance, evolve, and inspire millions of people around the world every day.
What art is trending in 2021?
The growing popularity of the virtual world is one of the artistic themes we’ve noticed. Furthermore, with this has come an increase in digital 3D motion graphic design. This is a cutting-edge and exciting art form that has caught the attention of budding artists all around the world.
Future of art and design
Art has a future that will continue to branch into new forms, including continuing to integrate new technology. Both Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality offer excellent ways to create immersive work, where the viewer can experience the artwork utilizing a headset or phone.
Technologies are revolutionizing the artistic process at each stage: ideation, production, and launch. Technology is empowering creativity at the highest level, resulting in ground-breaking new art forms, from architects employing digital whiteboards to design structures to artists videoconferencing with marine biologists to preserve ecosystems to musicians collaborating with coders to create immersive VR.
Future of digital art
The future of digital art can be used as an instrument to communicate with people, express ideas and emotions, and make changes in society. The future of AI art is one that can make machines more human. The use of AI technology is still limited, but it can be used to create AI creations in the future.
Traditional mediums such as canvas and lithography may get pushed to the side in favor of these new technologies, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Painting has been around for centuries and will remain relevant even when technology is capable of producing realistic 3D replicas of people or objects. It won’t die out anytime soon, but it may certainly evolve.
Games such as World of Warcraft and Minecraft may become even more popular in the future thanks to these new printing technologies. Artists will be able to design their own objects like swords or pickaxes and print them out with ease, giving kids a brand-new way to play outside (or inside). It’s only a matter of time before we see 3D printers in schools.
In the past, it was possible to determine what art would look like because there were restrictions imposed on artists by society and their tools. An artist who wanted to paint a picture couldn’t exactly go out and buy a set of oils if all they had access to were acrylics. The same idea applied to sculptors. The point is that limitations force creativity, which leads to innovation. What happens when the limitations are removed? That remains to be seen.
What Will Art Be in the Future?
In conclusion, art will have a strong focus on community building. Technology is merging the creation and production of art with storytelling, making them very popular among millennials. In addition, this technology will help to continue building connectivity, which is important in our time since it has been a very relevant topic for artists today.
Then again, who knows, but there’s no doubt in my mind that it will still exist in some form or another!
