All our murals are digital art mural designs.
This type of art is relatively new.
And it can be said that today digital art is still in full development.
Art is any form of human activity as a censure or exaltation of his inventive talent and expressive ability.
The features of all art also no doubt refer to the flair of digital wall art too.
And this is despite digital wall art being too often criticized for using technological tools.
The reason why, in the opinion of the most skeptical, make it easier to perceive, compared to more traditional artistic expressions.
But why are all our murals digital? Why is digital wall painting gaining popularity?
And why is it in demand? Let’s take a closer look at the advantages of this new form of wall art.
It is because digital mural art opens up so many possibilities for illustrators and muralists.
You can take paper sketches, paintings, found images, photographs, stills from movies and video games, and photocopy scans and turn them into digital art murals.
Artificial intelligence art mural vs digital art mural
What is the difference between an AI art mural and a digital art mural?
Artificial intelligence art murals are created using artificial intelligence algorithms that are trained on a dataset of images.
The algorithms learn the patterns and styles of the images in the dataset and use this knowledge to create new images.
Digital art murals, on the other hand, are created using digital tools such as graphic design software.
While both AI art and digital art involve the use of technology, AI art is characterized by its use of generative algorithms and deep learning techniques.
That autonomously produces art without direct input from human artists.
Digital mural artwork
A computer or digital art mural is a creative activity that is based on the use of computer (information) technologies.
The results of this are works of art presented in digital form. And then transferred to a wall by digital printing.
The term digital art mural can be applied to works of art that were originally created using other scanned images or media.
At present, the term “computer or digital art mural” includes possible new types of artistic works, the basis of which is the computer environment.
And also works of traditional art that are transferred to a new environment, created on a digital basis.
An example is a digital or scanned photograph or an object originally created using a computer.
A feature of this art from typical forms of visual art is the algorithmization of the creative process and technicality.
The computer creates the image and space with the help of software.
And therefore frees the artist from physical media, and provides the dynamics of the virtual environment.
One of the types of computer art is digital painting.
Mural digital painting
Digital painting is the creation of electronic images, which is carried out through the use of human-computer tools of the artist.
It is much easier to use the tools and materials of digital painting than in traditional wall painting.
For one, “digital paints” do not smell.
And the mural artist does not need to wait for a certain layer of color to dry on the wall.
Also, upon completion of the work, the artist will not get sick and the remains of the paint on his hands and clothes.
Professional digital mural artists
In fact, there is no specific list of what a digital artist should be able to do.
Much depends on the chosen direction.
You can start, for example, with vector graphics, then study digital painting, and then master 3D graphics.
And all this will require different programs and technologies.
The difference between a graphics designer and a digital mural artist
Initially, graphic designers worked on print publications.
But when computers appeared, they transferred the work to digital form.
But the meaning of their work has not changed.
Graphic designers must convey certain messages through static images and create them according to certain rules.
But digital mural artists do not convey a message, such as advertising or social.
They express themselves through creativity but with the use of computer technology.
What is digital wall art? or digital art mural
Digital wall painting is the creation of a digital art mural design on a computer and then printing it on the wall.
To draw or paint such a picture, you need to install a special program or download an application that imitates the artist’s brushes.
This does not mean that you can create a work of art at the touch of a button.
Because digital painting also requires knowledge of the techniques and basics of composition and color.
Features and benefits of digital wall murals
Many interior designers are turning to digital art mural as it is cheaper and a necessity in the world of animation, and illustration.
It also has other benefits:
- There is no mess in the form of spilled paint and stains, so digital painting can be done in any room and environment.
- No need to wait for the paint to dry – this greatly speeds up the workflow.
Powerful digital tools appear at the disposal of the artist: layers, various brush effects, filters, and corrections. All this opens up new creative ways of working.
- Provides the ability to alter, redo, or completely remove a part.
About this last interesting possibility, professor Felo Lira tells us:
“One of the great advantages of illustration and digital art, in general, corresponds to everything that has to do with editing and post-production: something that every artist will appreciate in their work process.
This is because it is possible to change colors, alter shapes, move objects, or even try a whole new composition, no matter how advanced the project is. What without a doubt would be extremely laborious, would take more time and in some cases would be impossible, to opt for a traditional format such as drawing on paper, painting on canvas, etc.”
What are the different types of digital wall painting?
There are different types of digital art murals.
Some of the most common types of computer-generated digital art come in the form of still images, both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional.
2D still images (aka 2D computer graphics) are created by combining text, 2D geometric models (vector graphics), mathematical equations, digital images (raster graphics), and so on.
The wide possibilities of digital graphics allow artists to pay more attention to developing their own style and creating new types of fine art.
Therefore, unlike traditional wall painting, there is no such clear division into types.
And rather, we can talk about a combination of different techniques. Consider the main types:
Imitation of traditional wall painting
This includes all forms of traditional fine art: painting from life, portrait, landscape, and still life.
Photomural, artwork based on photography
You can combine several photos or their individual elements, mix photos and three-dimensional objects, and draw and combine them into one finished fragment (photo bashing).
The latter is often used by game concept artists to speed up their workflow and achieve a higher level of detail and more realistic work.
For example, when working with real-life places or objects.
Now that you know what a digital art mural is in terms of the concept and its characteristics, surely you already identify some of the types and examples of digital art murals that you have come across so far.
In any case, we bring them to you below along with their main characteristics.
If you wonder what vector art is, you should know that it is a modality based on figures, points, and lines called vector graphics.
These make it easy to manipulate shapes and figures, without compromising image quality.
The digital mural artist uses vector drawing software to create images in a completely virtual environment.
Vector paintings include shapes and straight lines that can be represented in geometric formulas and filled with a variety of colors and patterns.
After that, the artist can easily manage and change shadows, transparency, groups, and so on.

Silk fabric murals versus vertical wall printing
Whereas a silk fabric digital art mural is removable and reusable, vertical wall printing is done directly on the wall.
The Wall printer is a kind of vertical inkjet printer that can print large format full-color images in a vertical direction.
And the control system will control the print nozzle to quantitatively eject ink droplets to Substrates.
The Wall Printer’s vertical printing technology allows for the electronic painting of large digital graphic files.
And you can print photos, artworks, murals, or text signage onto virtually any interior or exterior surface.
And that is about the only advantage you get from vertical wall printing.
Because silk fabric murals are intended for interior walls only. And you can not hang them outdoors.
Their machines are designed to print on numerous surfaces including plaster, sheetrock, glass, steel, brick, concrete, vinyl, and wood.
In less than three years, The Wall Printer has already sold its machines to over 40 businesses throughout North and South America, and the UK.
Vertical printers offer countless creative, practical, and fun uses that translate into real business opportunities for companies and entrepreneurs that adopt them.
Issues with the wall printers technology
However, Wall Printers are not a mature technology and have only been around for a few years since their creation.
For a highly sophisticated technology product with hundreds of components, engineers need to spend hours assembling, debugging, and testing the machine to make sure it can print accurately.
And you need hours of professional training to master the basics of operating the machine.
Wall printers with hundreds of parts are assembled by engineers with precision assembly processes that allow them to work together to create a beautiful image.
However, if poor-quality parts are used, there will be undesirable consequences for the printer.
Such as poor printing accuracy, unstable printing process, high failure rate but difficulty to troubleshoot, clogged printheads, etc.
Another issue you will find is that the color of the image printed on the wall differs greatly from the image on the computer screen.
It is normal for the difference in color to occur because of the different imaging methods.
Benefits of digital art murals
You learn with every new experience, and traditional art will teach you a lot that digital art mural painting can’t.
But one of the many advantages of digital art mural is that it tends to be faster and cheaper. Even if you are a very detailed artist or just paint slowly.
Because there is no need to wait for the drawing to dry and there is no risk that something will fall on your painting and ruin it.
Digital art is more forgiving.
Unlike traditional art, when painting digitally, you can easily change your mind or correct your mistakes.
“Ctrl-Z” is my best friend, in my sketchbook. If you draw a line that doesn’t suit you, you unconsciously try to use “Ctrl-Z” in real life!
Drawing digitally also makes it easy to select colors and change them with a single click.
You can always go back, erase some fragments or make the desired changes. Whereas with traditional drawing, if you screw up too much, it won’t be easy to fix!
In short, digital art allows you to modify your murals without ruining them.
Digital art can be cheaper.
Traditional mural art can be very expensive.
Even if you can buy materials in the budget range, chances are they aren’t that good.
And even if they are, you’ll run out of them. As for digital art, there are many free programs for it.
With digital art, you have endless possibilities to play with styles and techniques.
Modern digital art murals allow you to have an infinite number of styles and skills to play with. All with just one computer, software, and drawing board!
