ABSTRACT

Digital art has become a part of daily life. Despite the rising popularity of digital art and its advantages over traditional art, it is still unclear what the impact digital art has on the job market for artists today. This research provided a practical and quantitative method to investigate the impact of the rising popularity of digital art on the national job market for artists today. This study collected and sampled online data across the US and performed quantitative analysis. This study shows, in the study period (January-April, 2021), around 22,500 artist jobs available, and over 1% (2400) of them are high-paid jobs with an annual salary of over 100 K, and over 3% (7515) of them are medium-paid jobs with a salary of over 65 K. The majority (66%) of artist jobs with an annual salary of over 60 K are related to digital art and come from technology sectors. The digital art jobs are across the nation, not clustered around major cities.
