What is Electronic Art? Here are some definitions!

Electronic art refers to any type of art that is created using electronic or digital technology. This can include visual art, such as digital painting, video art, and multimedia installations, as well as audio-based art, such as electronic music and sound installations. Electronic art often involves the use of computer software, hardware, and other digital tools to create, manipulate, and display the artwork.

Digital Painting and Drawing: This involves creating artwork using digital tools such as tablets, stylus pens, and software like Adobe Photoshop, Procreate, or even just MS Paint that came with your computer.

Photography and Video Art: This category includes digital photography, video art, and experimental film-making, where the artist uses digital tools to capture, manipulate, and present images and videos.

Computer-generated Art: This category includes computer-generated graphics, animations, and simulations, which are created using software like Blender, Maya, or Cinema 4D.

Interactive Art: This category includes artworks that invite the audience to actively participate in the creation or experience of the artwork, such as virtual reality, augmented reality, and interactive installations.

Sound Art: This category includes music and sound, where the artist uses electronic and digital tools to create, manipulate, and present sound and music.
