From fine artists such as Marina Abramovic, Olafur Eliasson and Jeff Koons using virtual reality as a platform to present their works, to graffiti writers such as KATSU using drones to spraypaint their signature tags, technology is redefining our perception of art and how it’s developed. One of the more recent examples is Spanish artist Felipe Pantone who recently launched an online platform called “Configurable Art.” The project allows users to customize their own artworks using various materials.
