Manifesto: Art for the 21st Century by Alex Nodopaka April 2013




The advent of the computer eliminated the need of canvas and paint brushes and damn near the artist!




With the advent of the personal computer and the vast array of software programs to assist in the development of drawings, sketches, ready-made forms, architectural and engineering plans combined with their mix has in effect eliminated the need for long-hand execution for most artists except maybe for sculptors, and even at that 3-D drawing can translate in direct 3-D sculpting. The desire to paint, no matter how satisfactory the feel of the texture is, is a romantic notion of the past from which it is difficult to distance ourselves. Once the sketch or completed work is achieved with the PC, its reproduction by the numbers on traditional paper or canvas with traditional tools has become superfluous if not boring since the final creation is portrayed/demonstrated on the monitor screen!


In conclusion, one must take computer-assisted as a final portrayal with its attendant benefits of not cluttering our drawers with saved sketches and useless completed drawings and paintings, drying paints and varnishes, canvas stretchers etc.
