Let’s see how “modern art” is defined by Wikipedia: modern art includes artistic works produced during the period extending roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s, and denotes the style and philosophy of the art produced during that era. The term is usually associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation. Modern artists experimented with new ways of seeing and with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art. A tendency towards abstraction is characteristic feature of most of the modern art works.

And what about “modern art” in the web? Yes, most of the time that will be called illustrations and web design. But with the growing importance of online communications and i-devices, with the NEED to be interactive can we call people who create the look of your site “artists”? Personally I don’t see why a person who has drawing skills and who regularly creates his works cannot be called an artist only because he works with Adobe Illustrator and not with paint.
I do not insist at any way. I know several illustrators who do not allow to call them artists, painters, designer or anyhow except illustrators. And for some of them the name you call them does not matter as long as they can do what they like to do.
