Glitch Arts: Exploring the Love of Unconventional Art Forms

The best thing about art is that it never saturates and keeps embracing new forms to bring innovation and change. Glitch art is also one such example that depicts the quest of art to stay in a state of a stir.

It is all about celebrating the brokenness, absurdity and unconventionality. If you are wondering what glitch art is, then you need to go back to times when suddenly a bug pixelated the image on your computer screen to create an absurd vision of dots and lines. Well, this is not a glitch art, but that’s where the inspiration to make creative and inspiring glitch art pieces came from. Glitch art plays with the pixelated and interrupted images by turning them into visually appealing artistic wonders that seem so good to be true.

Over 350 significant art fairs are conducted all around the world every year. You get to experience art in its most pure form at such events. You can head over to to search for art fairs by city and date. Glitch art is always found flaunting at such events though there aren’t many artists to promote it.
