9. I believe in art as the highest achievement of humankind.
10. I believe in art as the perfect gift from the divine, to be shared.
I have my digital art displayed at Pygoya’s Truly Virtual Web Art Museum. It would seem fitting to discuss digital art (of which I am a practitioner) and traditional/manual art (of which I am not a practitioner), but I am not about to embark on such venture - others have done it, and are still doing it, better than I could.
Having disclosed my Credo, I can only state my conclusion about the subject: digital/computer/cyber art is here to stay. Tough on those who do not like it or accept it. Van Gogh and Modigliani - to cite just two examples of the only recently included into the Pantheon of traditional/manual art - did not give up painting their vision with whatever means and tools they had at their disposal because nobody or hardly anybody liked or bought their work.
