The plan highlights the Acceleration of Digital Arts Consumption and Creation through,  artificial intelligence, blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT) and more. 

Technology also presents immense opportunities for artistic creation as it expands the tools and media that artists can use to create and present their works

Starting this year, ARTSG has included a ‘digital highlight’ during Singapore’s Art Week to shine more light on digital art.

Digital art refers to any artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as part of the creative or presentation process. It can also refer to computational art that uses and engages with digital media.

Digital art has its own captivation. It is versatile in the sense where it could fit a screen as small as a phone size to as big as a few storeys high LED screen on a building.

For art to be created in a digital medium provides more possibilities; it could be an animation, it could come with customized audio, it could be paired with sensory system to provide real-time interaction… there are more to be discovered as the industry moves forward.

About Automata Gallery

Automata Gallery is an Art-Tech startup based in Singapore.

We are more than just a platform that sells digital art. We provide a space, both online and offline, where the general public can discover and purchase artwork in digital format from the artists whose work resonates with them.

Our journey began with a simple conversation between a digital artist and our team, where the idea for Automata Gallery was born.

This artist, juggling a full-time role as a graphic designer, had a passion for creating digital art on the side. Despite garnering attention on social media, he faced challenges in selling his work due to unfamiliarity with digital asset protection technology, such as NFTs; and the lack of proper display methods.

As we delved deeper into the digital art community, we realized that many artists shared similar struggles. That’s when we decided to venture into Automata Gallery.

Our goal is simple yet profound: to nurture the growth of the digital art industry and ignite a passion for collecting and appreciating digital artwork among the public.

Driven by this vision, we launched the first digital art space in Singapore, providing visitors with a tangible experience of the captivating world of digital art.

With every step we take, we remain committed to finding the best ways to serve our community as a whole and elevate the digital art landscape.

The Team

Automata Gallery is an Art-Tech Start-up, led by two female founders, Constance and Ann. With backgrounds in technology and a shared passion for art, we aim to use blockchain technology to protect the interests of digital artists and their art collectors.

Before launching the platform, we embarked on a global journey to participate in hackathons, testing our ideas and competing against thousands of elite teams.

After winning all the competitions, we were able to take our project to the next level.

In 2023, our platform made its debut at the Amazon Web Services Singapore Headquarters.
