With Omicron and Delta variants of COVID-19 running rampant across the world, the art world often gets overlooked because health and safety information is more important, but how can you enjoy and view art from around the world if everything is shut down?

 

We Are Lucky We Live During the Same Time As the Internet.



Awe yes the wonderful world we live in where we can look anything up and find it in an instant. This is not different for art; obviously it is not the same experience as walking into a gallery to view them in

person. However, this is not a bad alternative due to the fact that you do not have to put yourself in danger and can view any piece of art in the world. This is the time for you to do research if you are looking to buy and invest in art, as everyone will be trying to move their inventory online.


So this is your opportunity to explore art and culture from around the world to really figure out what you like and what your style is!

 


There Is A Whole New Style Of Art Being Created.


All of us are living in COVID-19's world at the moment, but where there is adversity; people find a way to push through it. This is no different in the art world, as a whole new style of art is being created which I like to call Covid art.



This is a prime example of the type of work that has been created these past few years. We have seen murals and portraits of "Essential Workers" being praised for the work they are doing to keep us all safe and healthy. This is one sub-category in the overall Covid art world. This has been the main type of work that has come out of the pandemic. Praising those who risk their own lives to help and serve those who are not as fortunate. Image By: commons.wikimedia.org


Then there is the other sub-category which I like to call, "doomsday art." This Covid art is exactly what it says it is.


This category of art is definitely not for everyone, but it is a new variety of art that I believe has a lot of potential. Obviously this piece is an extreme example of "doomsday art," however it is a good introduction of how different people view Covid.

There is so much new art being created by people world-wide about how the pandemic has affected them and their lives. This is an intriguing new category of art, and one to keep an eye on.

 


Virtual and Augmented reality make anything a possibility.


For those of you not comfortable with technology, virtual reality is a computer-generated simulation of a 3D image or environment that can be interacted with in a seemingly real or physical way by a person using special electronic equipment, such as a helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors.

This is what it looks like to be in virtual reality. Meanwhile you can experience augmented reality without having this special equipment. Your phone acts as the goggles in the image above, allowing you to see a virtual world that takes place in the real world. Okay, why am I mentioning this?


The reason for mentioning those two technologies is because art dealers, and galleries are implementing this technology to allow people to view their gallery without having to actually be there. For example: if you visit our website https://www.thefineartandframecompany.com, and scroll down a little bit on the home page, you can view our virtual tour of our gallery! This is a great way to stay involved and look at art without having to put yourself at risk.
