The “A Painting A Day” movement originated within the United States, and emerged on a global scale in 2004 through the confluence of various cutting-edge cyber elements, including free public auction sites, blogs, video sites, pod casting, and message boards. The initial model has evolved into a global view of fine art painting, nurtured by the Internet's public domain status and free from the influence of traditional institutions. There exists a renewed sense of ethos among fine artists internationally. Artists that have been oppressed geographically and socially historically are being liberated through their ability to both communicate with, and impact society on a global scale. Through using the public domain of the Internet, artists are now working autonomously and making significant contributions to the traditional practices of art education, curation and exhibition, marketing, criticism, and historical documentation. The Internet has democratized the manner in which these 20th century institutions are being practiced today.
