This qualitative review study examined the impact of technology on the practice of art and design. Every academic discipline has been impacted by the development and spread of technology. The same is true for art and design. The relationship between art, science, and technology has always existed, but it is clear from Leonardo da Vinci's high Renaissance drawings and works through the early and middle of the nineteenth century, when kinetic art was introduced, to the current digital age that art has been completely influenced by technology. This study examines how many forms of art have benefited from technology, particularly in Nigeria. However, a small number of artists, especially sculptors, have embraced technology to create, polish, and present their works. There is no academic documentation of the work of even these few painters. The focus of this inquiry into the role technology plays in art was on kinetic sculpture and the possibility for Nigerian artists to produce functional sculptures as opposed to the usual static and art produced only for aesthetic reasons. Paul Seyi-Gbangbayau and John Sunday, two Nigerian artists who worked in the field of art-technology, created a couple of the sculptures that were the subject of this study. The research's methodology included a survey of the literature, a studio experiment, photographs, and these artists' sculptures. The article suggests that Nigeria's art curriculum and syllabus be revised to take into account the most current advancements in technology and the digital age.
