“i came to this world with unlimited ability of creativity and inspiration. i am drawing and painting and sculpturing since i was a kid. i am a full time artists and a brand designer work in my studio. using my creativity in many ways.” – Yossi Kotler
The « New Media Art » is a way to describe Art using new mediums, such as emerging technology (cameras, computers, etc.) ; but since when can we classify Art with a new media still being new? We can affirm that Art is in a perpetual mutation, that is why there are so many movements in Art history.
It is a bit simplistic to call it « New Media Art » because at this point, it is not so new in our generation and the action of creating a piece of Art is not new as well. However, what we use to create it can be a new software or a new way of using an old medium such as the camera. Since the beginning of human being, “Art” is a part of life ; the Parietal Art intended to be something more useful than with the classic painters and sculptors, Art was more « decorative ».
An artist from the « New Media Art » is using digital media (computer) as his main medium such as Yossi Kotler and so many new artists in this type. His work is very colorful and has a real balance. He is taking his inspiration from everything in his life : movies, pictures from internet, drawings and paintings he made ; then, using some software programs, he will add more strenght and colors to his art work. In this way, he could be appreciated by a bigger audience as we could recognise ourself in his work. But is it really the right way to watch a piece of Art ?

I get inspired by the internet and by the life around me. my artworks are very colorful and strong with allot of layers. i don’t thinks that i have one style because i am exploring all the time different style. i can be very accurate in the details and very free. it’s depend in what i want to achieve.”
