New technologies have affected all fields including the arts, especially contemporary arts that embrace modernity. The rapid development of digital technology had a great impact on all types of arts, including traditional arts. It also had a big influence on the artist himself. This development has led to an escalation in breaking the boundaries between fine arts, new media art, technology, and commerce, and creating a kind of tension. We find ourselves questioning does this type of art require basic artistic skills similar to the original art. What are the differences and how did they affect positively or negatively? Are traditional arts preserving their artistic identity, or have they merged with the latter? Can digital art exceed or replace traditional art? Due to the ease of consuming, publishing, and sharing this type of art, the artist felt the need to keep up with this phenomenon and found himself forced to follow the rapid development and keep pace with the requirements of the times. What leads to prompted the artist to want to change the content of the art media or perhaps create new media? This intersection between art and technology has led to new artistic innovations, as the process of creativity lies through constant renewal.
