Define your own creative reality. VR art gives you the freedom to play around with colors, tools, and a near-infinite canvas. Drawing, painting, sketching, sculpting—no matter your preferred medium and skill level, Oculus Quest 2 has some great VR art apps to choose from. We’ve listed our top picks for creative experiences below.

Unlock Your Imagination with VR Painting Apps

Painting VR (App Lab only) is one of the latest VR painting games. While the options for 2D art tools seem endless, Painting VR offers a uniquely straightforward canvas-and-paint approach with finely-tuned brushstrokes and realistic color blending. Build your artistic skill with complete freedom—and forget having to clean up the mess afterward.

If you’ve painted in VR before, you may be familiar with Tilt Brush, an app that takes paintbrush strokes into the 3D space for incredible effects. Tilt Brush remains one of the most approachable experiences for painting in VR. Novices can select the beginner mode or learn from an active community of artists.

For a genuine street art experience in VR, Kingspray Graffiti adds stunningly realistic spray paint effects and vibrant color to any artist’s toolkit. Paint by yourself in a gritty city environment or collaborate with others to create a vibrant work of art together.

Interact with Your Art with Sculpting VR Apps

Try out powerful apps that propel your creations into 3D space. Apps like Gravity Sketch make creating 3D objects a straightforward process, letting you build on layers and design with different tools and materials. These 3D creations are easily shared and can even be exported in specific file formats for 3D printing.

Artistic apps like SculptrVR welcome multiplayer fun, letting you carve out entire worlds and works of art that you can interact with. Relax and entertain yourself with endlessly flexible materials and a massive virtual space that’s yours to carve and shape into whatever you can dream up.
