Digital Art in its myriad forms.

Digital Art: An emerging trend

New form of abstract art made possible with technology

From Abstract to Fractal Art!

In his 1995 video; painter, Paul McCarthy is dressed in a very disturbing, overblown & most absurd cliché of an artist and is being filmed in a cheap studio. He smears paint on a canvas with an oversized brush, mumbling “God”. He rubs a huge paint against a canvas..

The result that comes out is an abstract painting – the most distorted form of artwork McCarthy could have made. Yet over years later something has happened. Abstract painting, the unique form of fine art is feeling fresh again.

Algorithmic Art channels into Integrated Art!

 Digital Art is an art made with the help of computers while abstraction is the form in which the artist wants to express his story. Creating an Abstract art which is balanced and surreal is made easy with the help of digitization.

Abstract photography is too an emerging trend with the modern artists! It is conceptual and non experimental. Though it is created using photographic materials, its purpose has strongly been refined to usage of colors, lights, textures and shadows to give an unreal and digital outcome, not necessarily associated with the subject! And the unprecedented accessibility it provides to users is how digital photography changed the world. Another unusual role this has adopted is that of photo-painting or photo-realism. In this genre, artists try to reproduce in their art photographs in as much detail as possible. An off-shoot of this style is the genre of digital collage. In effect this intermingling of mediums leads us to what is called mixed media art or integrated arts with an inter-disciplinary approach.

Artists create a fascinating art forms, usually taking subjects like objects, flowers, paintings, sculptures and other such things!And this digital revolution in art has taken many forms. You may ask what is algorithmic art or perhaps you’ve seen fractal art prints for sale. Both these art forms are derived from an amalgamation of digital technology & visual art. And not only that, this new phenomenon has worked its way into some innovative applications like systemic art therapy. It has also influenced other areas like Cybernetic art where the principles of cybernetics are used to create art. The influx of systems theory into this domain has yielded genres like Systems Art. Not to mention the use of software to create what is software art. This has also metamorphosed into what is generative art which is simply a result of the autonomous implementation of set rules & processes to generate art.

Abstract Images takes over the web!

Some amazing artists who defined a new meaning to the world of condensed art:

  • Spanish artist Maria Marce uses perfectly controlled colors and patterns to define her beautiful abstract imagery.

  • Artist David Kessler just takes his canvas and paints without any pre planned idea or notion and thus creates his beautiful imagery.

  • Lucas Zoltowski’s Deviant Art portfolio is full of equally incredible abstract art, which Zoltowski describes as "an an experiment in contrasts and opposites; dark and bright, soft and hard, rising and falling".

  • Bob Nicklas in his book Painting Abstraction in 1995 argued that contemporary abstract painting is an expression of how the world feels today.

Condensed Abstraction and Digital Arts

The condensed abstraction and digital art and designs are not just unique, but also sensational. One picture will look at you with piercing dark eyes and the other looks like reality just melted into the future. One will seem like digital energy trapped in a picture and the other will look like a regular abstract art. They will seem bizarre and unnatural at first and a moment later they will all make complete sense. Immo Jalass' show looks like a redefinition of art in its own electrifying way.

The Work of a Digital Artist

But from the year 2000, when half of the world was discovering the pros and cons of the computer, Jalass was busy thinking big.

"In the new millennium, I replaced the easel with a computer monitor and an oil palette with digital programs; I dedicated myself to computer art" says Immo. The digital art gallery created by him look so electrifying that Jalass himself remains moved by many of them. "Some of them make me look at them again and again and I wonder how I have been able to create this."

Looking through Immo Jalass' show on the SF Studio one can easily be taken aback by its edgy and eclectic digital artworks. Each creation is more bizarre and more intricately beautiful than the other. So what is the process of making such stunning art work?

The Process

He calls it condensed abstraction - A complex procedure of copying, pasting, coloring, decoloring, stretching, and editing each image in such a way that each process gives it a new sense.He works with one or two photographs and puts them under a hundred different processes to create a digitally amazing output. "I work with the image until not even one of the original pixels is left."

There are some great online courses that offer digital art for beginners. Find one here that tops our chart!

The Outcome

Jalass' creations like 'As developing', 'Free viewed' and 'Victory' have the electromagnetic ability to make them look like they are in constant motion. With every creation, there is a lot of unique experimentation as he plays around with colors and pixels to document his thoughts with accuracy. His creations are mostly digitally electrified outcomes of imaginary landscapes, abstract expanses, or shots of cities that seem to be taken from another planet or time zone.

ShowFlipper: The Digital Art Gallery

SF Studio has housed several out of the box artists like Heinz Sterzenbach with his rust painting called Ferroprinting andRony Bolivar with his Fluidalismo paintings. Immo is another artist who has long since developed his own digital painting style and technique. Jalass' digitally abstract creations show his edgy outlook towards art. His ability to make each piece look like a picture from the future is commendable.

Most conventional art forms are slowly being replaced by newer ones. The canvas is being replaced by different forms of digital art. Immo Jalass has redefined abstract images by replacing oil paint with graphics. Condensed abstraction shows digital art in the most unique and amazing ways.
