There has been a surge of interest in flat art in the digital art space. In flat art, artists eschew the use of outlines, edges, shadows, and highlights in an effort to create 2-dimensional space. Colors are extensive and unmodulated as artists reduce visual elements to their most basic form, without depth, texture, and materiality. The simplicity of this style creates a clean, contemporary aesthetic that is highly sought after.
Here are four examples of exciting flat artworks on Exchange Art:
- Vincenzo, SKYLINE
Vincenzo creates minimalist landscapes and cityscapes. In SKYLINE, the artist represents the skyscrapers of downtown Manhattan in flat, unmodulated colors and soft lines. The viewer is forced to look beyond the opaque trees to the city beyond.

3. Kiramoto, follow the light
