City or cityscape digital art has become a trending topic of conversation lately. I find that I am well versed in the topic and extremely invested in the outcome, but I’m not sure I want to be involved. I would really rather let my art speak for itself. I was, at one time, ready to climb to the rooftops, raise my arms and declare that digital art is real art. Kinda over it now as I have come to realize that my artistic validation will never come from the mainstream and nothing I yell from the rooftops will endear me to my own work. Yes, digital art is real art and yes, eventually, others will commend it as such but no, I really don’t need them to do so now.
There are so many different types of digital art techniques, styles and tools, choosing to grade, rate or judge the resulting art within one group simply because they are all made with computer software is as complicated and animated as comparing Renaissance to Impressionism. When it’s all said and done, one is left with the same questions that have given life to modern art; How does it make you feel? Do you like it?
