Digital Art

This is what the English wikipedia tells us about digital art:
Digital art can either be understood as any artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as part of the creative or presentation process, or more specifically as computational art that uses and engages with digital media. Since the 1960s, various names have been used to describe digital art, including computer art, multimedia art and new media art.

After some initial resistance, the impact of digital technology has transformed activities such as painting, literature, drawing, sculpture and music/sound art, while new techniques, such as net art, digital installation art, and virtual reality, have emerged. Lillian Schwartz’s Comparison of Leonardo’s self portrait and the Mona Lisa based on Schwartz’s Mona Leo. An example of a collage of digitally manipulated photographs Andy Warhol created digital art using a Commodore Amiga where the computer was publicly introduced at the Lincoln Center, New York in July 1985. An image of Debbie Harry was captured in monochrome from a video camera and digitized into a graphics program called ProPaint. Warhol manipulated the image adding colour by using flood fills.
