What Makes Vector Art - So Special?
In the digital world, there are two main forms of art: Raster Art where we color in a fixed number of
pixels on a screen like say with Photoshop and Vector Art where we color in mathematically defined
shapes like with Illustrator. Raster art has its own special powers and allows the creation of
photorealistic art with shading and incredible details, depending on the resolution. Both of these can
be controlled with a computer to generate art using algorithms. However, only one of them is done
independent of resolution—Vector Art.
What does this mean? It means that no matter how large we render it or how high the resolution,
we get a crystal clear image with sharp lines whereas if you blow up pixel art larger than intended,
you will start to see jagged blocks and artifacts. Since my art is vector art, I can make it the size of a
billboard or large mural with no loss of clarity. Not only that, but I often hide tiny details that won’t
even be visible at smaller sizes but become apparent when shown larger and thus adds a greater

Yes, vector art is also limited and can’t do things that painters or pixel artists can do and it’s terrible
at creating photorealism so the vector artist has to think differently. I don’t even try to be realistic
and find it very liberating, opening a new kind of Impressionism and Abstraction that was not even
possible before. This excites me because it allows the viewer to fill in the missing details with their
imagination. Instead of a plain photo that anyone can take with their phone these days, you get a
whole new thing that keeps certain aspects of the original image but introduces thousands of new
details and shapes where the parts are almost as cool as the whole.
