The rise of digital street art: Discover the artists bringing 3D to the streets

There are many reasons why artists are increasingly working in the world of digital street art. One of which is that the discipline allows you to “view everyday places with a fresh perspective”, adds Matteo, an experienced digital street artist who has become known for twisting reality with geometry, patterns and objects. Additionally, it’s a highly accessible medium that allows users to work from any location at any time. “It’s getting easier for people to create digital street art because tools are more portable, powerful and easy to get,” Matteo continues. That’s not to say it’s easy to create a piece of digital street art, though, as Raghav points out. “It is still an art form that requires a considerable amount of effort and skill, where the artist has to spend a week or two just to create a short 15-second video,” he says.

Compared to a few years ago, the amount of tools needed to create a digital artwork have dramatically decreased, allowing both experienced and emerging 3D creators to engage with the discipline. Camyl, a creative based in Canada, has recently discovered digital street art. Her journey started in music videos, shooting music festivals and various videos for local and international artists. However, when working in film specifically, Camyl felt like there were limitations with “just shooting reality,” she says. “Some of the artists I worked with had smaller budgets and wanted to do bigger things, such as be on the moon or be a giant walking over a city. I wanted to do more.” After this, Camyl decided to learn the ropes of 3D animation and CGI in order to push her fantastical ideas further. “Now if I want to build worlds and create scenes from sci-fi to fantasy, I can create anything I can imagine.”
