“Common visual art” is created by people as a form of self-expression and engagement with others and the broader aesthetic world. Many have no or little formal training in the creation of art. But they draw from a shared humanity even as they express themselves based on a singular and individual vision. Common Visual Art in a Social Digital Age (2022) explores this phenomenon of “common art” from various angles. This collection—in exploring art challenges, online art communities, digital doodling, pseudo-algorithmic art (with humans in the loop), fanart, data art, line art, “survival” alcohol ink paintings in a time of a pandemic, adult coloring books, visual journaling, the monetizing of common art, self-branding strategies of common artists online, common food art, world creating, event-based common art, mass-scale senses of art on the Social Web, 3D art, and 4D art—lays some light initial groundwork to explore this space.
