WHAT IS THE "ORIGINAL"?

 

FOR THE SAKE OF AESTHETIC ARGUMENT AS TO WHETHER DIGITAL ART IS "REAL" OR "FINE" ART,  PYGOYA SELECTED TO DRAW FROM THE LIVE MODEL WITH ERASIBLE MESSAGE BOARD AND FELT PEN MARKERS. SO THE  HAND DRAWING IS ERASED INSTANTLY AFTER CAPTURED BY HIS DIGITAL CAMERA - FOR FURTHER  DEVELOPMENT  IS HIS COMPUTERIZED STUDIO.  

ART CONCEPT HERE: DIGITAL IMAGE CREATED WITH NO  TRADITIONAL ART  PREDECESSOR SURVIVING.   THE DIGITAL IMAGE RECORDS AN ACT OF ART, TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT, NOTHING ELSE REMAINS!  SOME WORKS IN HIS "BOX OF CHOCOLATES" SERIES WERE CREATED WITH THIS ART THEORY CONSIDERATION IN MIND.
