Art comes in many forms, from NFTs to photography. It evolves in our dynamic world and finds new platforms to shine in many different shapes. We’re on the verge of an art boom lead by emerging artists worldwide. Regardless of whether you’re an artist yourself, or an avid art enthusiast, in order to try and guess what might be waiting for us in the future of art, it is always a good idea to look back to the recent art trends.

Particularly due to the pandemic, and the digitalization of everyday matters, digital art has become a force to be reckoned with. The melding between art and the digital plane was meant to be, the compatibility of both mediums is undeniable. This combination gave birth to exciting art movements and styles.

Judge for yourselves:

As we discussed before, NFTs are almost catching up to the total size of the global fine arts market. They represent 21st-century spirit: fresh, bold, and non-conformist. The only way for NFTs is up. They will become increasingly prominent, and soon enough more and more people will realize just how astounding the possibilities of this market are.


Corporate giants in the social media sector have already started to seize the opportunity, as they have become increasingly interested in including NFTs into their system. Twitter has been a pioneer in this hype and already lets users use their NFTs as their profile pictures via a paid subscription service they recently launched.


We think crypto art will continue to occupy the top seat in the art game in the short run and could affect the job market in the long term. Combined with hologram technology, we may witness the beginning of the new era.

3D printers helped humanity in many areas of life, even in the health sector. It may be surprising to hear that, but this technology can actually be essential for developing future material art.


Compared to the physical world, the digital realm helps artists free their minds and channel their inner creativity without the physical limitations of the real world. But this is only one side of the coin because that specific art piece can only exist in the digital verse; at least, that’s what it used to be like.


With the 3D printers, the existence of digital art can be translated beyond the limits of the screen. We think this will be one of the top art techniques while as we move into 2022, especially when in-person art experiences find their momentum again in the post-pandemic world.

The post-pandemic world will bring us countless opportunities to spend time outdoors. And, what’s better than wandering around the streets, with the warm sun and gentle wind tossing your hair? Try adding some public art masterpieces.


Some think digitalization had nothing to do with street art, mural designs, or sculptures. However, digitalization had, frankly, everything to do with the art! Even if traditional public art techniques still makes use of physical materials and tools, the outcomes are affected by none other than digital verse. Now, one can understand public art as art inspired by the public.

Classic public art was mostly used for protest purposes or to express a personal opinion. Nowadays, they can be an homage to cultural icons. Still, those homages are also far from conventional art: they are modernized, colorized, and rebelized spectacularly. Technology and new culture shakes and shapes the perception of said pieces.


We believe public art will be one of the pillar art forms in the near future, not just because of the audience it reaches but also because of the vibe it radiates all over everything is surrounds.

Speaking of the outdoors, there is one key thing that we took for granted before the pandemics. We think we’re talking for of everyone when we say, “We missed nature!” But what can one do to bring the outdoorsy feeling indoors? Perhaps the language of art can offer us a solution.


Art imitates life in many remarkable ways. But it is only one side of its many faces. Nature-inspired art can help artists express their frustrations about the world; it can be a powerful protest against the global climate crisis or it can simply offer a way to escape from the anxiety of mundane city life.


We’re thrilled to see nature-inspired art expanding further thanks to digitalization. Contrary to popular believe, these two don’t have to be each other’s antithesis, they can actually grow stronger together, as they should.

Neon Art

Last but not least, we have a bright colour palette! Neon art has been around for a few years, but recently, it became trendy in home decorations. However, their place in the art world isn’t limited to home design, they also continue to inspire other art trends such as digital art.


Whenever we see a neon piece, we can’t help but remember the cyberpunk aesthetic. It is very futuristic, fearless, and vibrant. Especially with the help of developing technologies, we believe that neon art is here to stay and probably, also to slay.


We think art is one’s voice for the others’ eyes. It is expressive, creative, and found in many forms. The only question is whether the world is ready for the art extravaganza that is most definitely to come. So… Is it?
