Myles Kleinfeld: Digital Mind
Digital Art refers to artwork that is made using software, computers, or other electronic devices. Anything produced or made on digital media such as illustrations, videos, digital paintings, etc. can be classified as Digital Art.
Digital Art can be considered true art because it requires the same creative techniques and skills as traditional art. Making a good quality Digital Art piece requires the same amount of skill, talent, originality, knowledge, and effort as any other traditional art piece. Every artist must learn to master his tools regardless of the medium. Therefore, it’s fair to say Digital Art is true art.
Myles Kleinfled art pieces in the 'Digital Mind' exhibition were computer-generated and taken mostly from the letters and numbers on a keyboard. Using Adobe software these works of art are considered digital paintings and are signed and have a limited edition.
The idea for this particular work came about as an experiment for Myles to try to simplify his artistic visions of objects and colors as much as possible. He calls his work Digital Minimalism. The work was inspired by the Minimal Artists: Ellsworth Kelly and Frank Stella. The basis for this is to have the viewer experience the images without the distractions of theme and other elements of traditional art. The letters and numbers create their own reality and are used literally and not intended to symbolize anything. The elements and colors are used to simply delineate space.
