While it will always be difficult to replace the visceral authenticity that comes with creating art on a physical canvas, technology has still been a huge net benefit to creatives everywhere – opening up the entire world of art to anyone who can get online, where visually appealing content and music are always in constant demand.
The internet is an endless library of creatives from every corner of the globe, discussing, producing, and innovating incredible art of all types, from drawings and paintings, to pottery and clay work, as well as acting, animation, embroidery and dance – if you’re interested in it, it’s only a couple of clicks away.
As well as this, as time has gone on, technology continues to improve at an ever-increasing rate, meaning that in some ways, the cycle is being completed – the ability of technology such as laptops and their accessories to emulate the experience of drawing or making music, and then further enhance that experience with software and social media, is an incredibly exciting thing.

One benefit to artists and the art industry that has come out of technology is the ability to access vast amounts of information. Whether you want to know how to complete a certain dance move, create a certain effect in watercolor, or learn how to play jazz piano, there are endless other enthusiasts out there that want to share their work and their expertise.
Thanks to the way that social networks and platforms such as YouTube, Instagram and Pinterest work, artists can now connect with a community where everyone is learning and enjoying. In terms of your individual interests, the ability to access so much different content means that artists become inspired to create their own distinct style.
Through the creation of these communities online comes an amazing opportunity to collaborate with others – as instant messaging to artists from all over the world, as well as in your local area, fosters working relationships that can be financially beneficial to everyone.
In a truly globalized world, where people can connect through their art from anywhere on the planet, the possibilities for incredible collaborations are immense, bringing cultures and styles together that would never have been possible over the vast physical distances.
