Art and technology are interrelated, yet they have two very different definitions. Art can be defined in many ways: as something aesthetically pleasing, inspiring, thought-provoking, or even the act of creating art itself. On the other hand, technology can be defined as a complex system or device that creatively uses science and math or can be used creatively.

The intersection of technology and art is a complicated topic. Technology has translated art into visual and auditory forms, but we can also look at art as technology. Art puts the invisible into form, using technology to project images and sounds into the physical world. Art and technology go hand and hand.

How do Art and technology work

It all started with the ancient Greeks when sculptors would carve into marble and bas-reliefs and paintings painted on walls or canvas. Since then, the most elaborate forms of art have been created using just paint, water, and canvas. 

But as computer processing power increased, so did the ways artists could express their art. Nowadays, art can be created in programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, and Autodesk Maya, which simulate real light, shadows, and real-world materials.

Art and technology go together like peanut butter and jelly. Art and technology are inseparable. Art is technology. Technology is art. Art is technology. Technology is art. The very nature of art involves technology, whether it be painting with brushes, sculpture with material, or music made with modern technology.

How are Art and technology related?

The world is constantly advancing in technology and innovation, and we can’t expect arts and culture to stay stagnant. The arts have always been shaped by technology, and as technology has advanced over the years, it has influenced the arts more than ever. 

At first glance, computers and art may seem like two very different things. However, the two are actually closely interconnected, with art influencing technology and vice versa. People are connecting more than ever through the internet and smartphones in today’s society. 

As a result, people are using the internet to improve art. For example, Instagram has popularized the idea of “in the moment” art, where users capture their photos with smartphones and post them immediately. These photos are then Instagrammed and shared with the world.

While the Internet may have killed the art gallery, it has also given artists a creative outlet that couldn’t be achieved prior to the digital age. Today, artists of all kinds are breaking free from traditional gallery walls and creating works of art that anyone with an Internet connection can view and interact with. One who knows how to take advantage of this, is Gal Yosef, a rising 3D artist who is also known for his impressive use of color. His art uses technology to enhance his use of color.

Yosef also integrated digital technology into his art, creating diverse and dynamic compositions full of texture, vibrancy, and emotion. 


The human body is a complicated symbol, which has always attracted the attention of artists throughout history. Currently, 3D technology allows artists to literally approach the human body and the insides we have not seen before.
