For young artists, the dawn of the digital age meant a fundamental re-shaping of how art was brought to the public. The Internet now hosts countless online art forums, art galleries, and markets, all designed to help artists establish a reputation and get their art in front of unique users all over the world. Many larger art venues are now hosting online art gallery viewings, with full panoramic captures of their physical gallery space for online viewers who cannot travel to the physical site. Now that young artists can establish quick connections with artists all over the world, the nature of avant-garde art has also changed to incorporate far more external influence. Styles are now constantly adapting, changing, and absorbing different techniques, rather than remaining relatively static for years or even decades as in the time before the Internet.

In larger metropolitan areas, we’ve seen an explosion of street art. To be fair, street art was around long before the digital age, but now street artists are mimicking techniques from digital art programs, such as Adobe’s Photoshop. Street art has become an even more fundamental way to produce social commentary, and with programs like Facebook,  Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and Reddit acting as social pipelines, one viewer can upload the street art to the Internet and get the word out an order of magnitude faster than was possible before such programs existed. As such, avant-garde art (art utilizing experimental ideas) has changed to suit these programs by becoming increasingly public, especially in areas with thriving local art scenes. Viewers do not hesitate to create social media campaigns based around new artists and galleries.  Street art has also been known as urban art, guerilla art, graffiti, stencil graffiti, sticker art, wheatpasted poster art, and street installation.

3D printing is also entering the digital age with great promise for new experimentation in avant-garde art. Originally conceived of as a way to produce a decentralized manufacturing industry based on input from computer software, 3D printing has also found a happy home among young artists, many of whom are already familiar with computer design software. 3D printing allows for the direct creation of any software design in a variety of mediums, but most current 3D printers use a kind of malleable plastic for their designs. Industrial-scale models are also being developed to use other fuels, such as spray concrete and metal. In the coming decades, we may see another fundamental shift in the way art is produced and learned as art schools decentralize as a result of the growing number of home-based 3D printers, all of which will be able to receive and execute designs from all over the world at any time.
