SURREAL DIGITAL ART

Digital art is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as an essential part of the creative or presentation process. Since the 1970s, various names have been used to describe the process including computer art and multimedia art, and digital art is itself placed under the larger umbrella term new media art.

Major genres within surreal digital art include photo manipulation, digital collage, digital painting, CGI/3D-rendering, Algorithm Art & Digital Animation.
