The Frameless digital art exhibition puts you inside iconic paintings – I'm inspired

Digital art can be off-putting and even sterile for many people, even experienced artists, but using it to bring the most famous traditional works of art to life is the ideal way to reshape how many can see the medium. I recently visited the Frameless exhibit in London, and came away inspired and in awe.

I step into a cavernous room, music plays, lights dazzle and I'm wrapped in Gustav Klimt's The Tree of Life. I'm disoriented and lost as swirls of paint envelop me and the mirrored room projects what feels like hundreds of surreal leafs; I have a sensation of the floor moving beneath me and the walls shifting as Klimt gives way to Bosch and Dali. I've never felt closer to a work of art before.
