Summary/Abstract: The possibilities of the new computer and internet-technologies in the sphere of the fine art are analyzed. The synthesis of the art and science led to invention of such new forms of the art as fine art in style of CG-art, video performance, video-sculpture, WEB-design and VJ-ing etc. Without high-tech innovation, it is hard to imagine the potential integration of any sphere of life in world space, which is characterized by rapid computerization. Perhaps, the most significant information-communication technologies reflected on the specifics of the fine arts, which in turn influenced the modern form of exhibitions, which are now often represented a separate art project. A special place among modern computer technologies is occupied by digital art, the main types are:- Digital computer graphics;- Digital computer painting;- Digital computer sculpture.They can be described as those where using the computer technologies, we can the most definitely simulate the materials, techniques and technology specific to traditional forms of graphics, painting and sculpture. The synthesis of art and the technology does such tasks such as to satisfy aesthetic needs by fashion trends and gravity to information and graphic culture; to involve the ranks of supporters of fine art youth. Notably, the computer art requires not only professional artistic skills, but also requires advanced knowledge of computer science. This modification of art solves another problem of promotion of information and computer literacy. The first mention of the possibility of computer technology in the creative paintings was in 1995-1996. Today you cannot surprise anybody by the painting style CG-art (Computer Graphics Art). Ivan Hivrenko is one of the most famous Ukrainian artists working in the "digital" style. The widespread interest in using of digital computer art practice is proved by a number of exhibitions. The digital art demonstrates interesting decision in creation of the reproductions. Chayan Hoi, a French artist and photographer created a series of works, which he defined as "cyber realism." Nowadays, video art is one of progressive direction of modern art. For example, they are a video, a video in off-line mode, with pre-superimposed sound; video-performances, mounted video equipment mounting. Except video art, WEB-design and VJ-ing gained wide recognition in the modern art. Among the artists and VJs, we can highlight the work of British director Peter Hrynueyya. In general, researchers believe that digital painting, WEB-design and VJ-ing is the closest to the salon art which characterized by eclectic, quasi historical character, idealization of images, grotesque and etc. Finally, we would like to emphasize one important thing. Active development of innovative computer technologies requires a new approach to the system of training of future artists. In particular, this is integrated classes which would include studying of fine arts and computer graphics, optimal combination of traditional and modern teaching aids. Practical mastery of multimedia technologies in the future will greatly facilitate the inclusion of young talent in professional life and will help to avoid banality and amateur. Moreover, nobody knows what other surprises in the future the fruitful cooperation of science and art prepare for us.
