TEXT OF WEBLOG
I have not read the two books which inspired
Pygoya the artist(Dr.Chang the dentist)to pen down his thoughts. I share his
thoughts and applaud his mission.
I am a retired anthropology professor from India, and a digital artist by
stubborn choice. I thoroughly enjoy my time working as a digital artist. I
refuse to paint on canvas only because my work will be appreciated (and
marketed) better in jaundiced 'art circles'.
I think one's 'beliefs' (e.g. afterlife) are powerful inspiration for self
realisation social objectives. But I do not think beliefs e.g. afterlife, have
to be "real". There is a border-line between "vision" (belief)and
"reality" (physical fact).
Perhaps similar borderline separates hard copy of digitised art and real art
canvas. Those who underestimate digital art are not concerned with the
intrinsic aesthetic and spiritual qualities but with "market" value,
privileged (unsharable) possession, and vested interests. Digital art is not
considered collectible because it is not seen by market managers as
"art" valued in money.
I think digital art is in the realm of popular culture which is totally
different from the exclusive elite art culture. Popular and universal
realm of digital art in cyber space is the unique strength of digital art. Its
affinity with popular culture of mass media is grossly unexplored and under

Pygoya will be a big big leap forward. Congratulations Pygoya. We are with
