Ever since the invention of communication technology, which was then followed by the invention of the internet, the two apparatuses have become a very important part of our daily life. For many of us, it feels like something is missing when we do not have a look at social media during a particular day, either in search of news, a message from friends or relatives, or otherwise when we would like to send a post to our social media account. This developed into a phenomenon called the Internet of Things (IoT), which denotes everything about physical items communicating with each other. Machine-to-machine communications and person-to-computer communications are extended to inanimate objects. Indeed, ubiquity networks do exist everywhere, and with the aid of the modern computer, which has become so speedy and powerful in its work, they are opening up the road to the revolution of IoT (simply known as Revolution 4.0), which then signifies the beginning of the future generation of the internet. This article forms a descriptive study of the presence of digital art, which has been signified by three extraordinary occurrences, i.e., the presence of the world of art as based on Virtual Reality (VR), the principles of digital art for everybody, and the future which is expected to be signified by artistic creativity based on tech-enabled availability. All of these three phenomena are discussed here for the sake of achieving an understanding of the generic multidimensional space, since this article does not intend to lead us to the specific meaning of digital art and its implications for the development of aesthetic values. Furthermore, this article does not assume to provide any theory of criticism whatsoever. The result of this study is simply to show how technological disruption in the world of art, including art education and its effects on the traditional arts, has become a constant topic of discourse in academic society. Keywords: Digital Art, Virtual Reality, Traditional Arts.
