Nov 06,2023 AM 10:00

XPPen introduces the Artist 22 Plus to creatives across the globe, a large canvas drawing display boasting the industry-leading 16K pen pressure technology, which delivers an unparalleled premium digital art experience. However, cost should not stand in the way of creativity.


The globally renowned digital art brand, XPPen, today launched its newest offering to the global creative community, the XPPen Artist 22 Plus large canvas digital drawing display. As the inaugural release of the all-new Artist Plus series, this product not only establishes a new benchmark set by XPPen for prosumer creative tools but also stands as the industry's first 21.5 inch drawing display equipped with the X3 Pro chip and 16K pen pressure sensitivity. Moreover, it is XPPen's first non-Pro level product to adopt the cutting-edge X3 Pro chip technology. Additionally, the launch is accompanied by the next-gen X3 Pro Roller Stylus, reflecting XPPen's forward-thinking positioning for the industry's future evolution and showcasing the brand's strategic vision for innovation and technological integration. In line with XPPen's user-centric philosophy, the Artist 22 Plus eschews conventional ID design norms and builds upon the aesthetic design concept used in the critically acclaimed predecessor, the Artist Pro (Gen 2) series. While adhering to aesthetics, it also conforms to ergonomic design, providing creators with a sustained and comfortable creative journey. This ensures every interaction with the device enjoyable and intuitive.

"At XPPen, we're acutely aware of the boundless possibilities of creativity and recognize that technology plays an important role in realizing these visions. That’s why we introduce the Artist 22 Plus, unlocking deeper potential of the 16K pen pressure sensitivity through a 21.5 inch display. A larger screen not only means a bigger canvas for creation but also heralds the birth of more intricate and grander artistic pieces. Without a doubt, this product is the ideal choice for digital drawing, illustration, animation, VFX, and design," said Kevin Li, head of Product at XPPen. "Our deliberate approach to pricing aims to ensure that every individual brimming with creativity can effortlessly enjoy the advantages and pleasures brought about by cutting-edge technology."

Highlights of XPPen Artist 22 Plus


The XPPen Artist 22 Plus comes with industry-first 16K pen pressure sensitivity, empowered by the latest generation X3 Pro chip, offering an unprecedented digital drawing experience for diverse creative users. Such groundbreaking technology ensures each stroke is rendered with a delicate, smooth, and precise feel, capturing unmatched realism and accuracy. The 21.5-inch full display boasts a 130% sRGB native color space, 8-bit color depth, and a pallet of 16.7 million colors, allowing users to toggle between three color spaces: sRGB, Adobe RGB, and DCI-P3. This ensures vivid color accuracy and true-to-life representation, accommodating the increasing color critiques from evolving digital artists as technology advances. For enhanced user comfort, the X-Inspo Wrist Rest has been ergonomically designed to alleviate wrist strain during extended creative sessions. In addition, the comprehensive Type-C and HDMI connection methods not only support direct connection with a single cable, freeing the workspace from cluttered cables, but also offer versatility for other connection preferences. Maintaining XPPen's consistent high compatibility, the Artist 22 Plus supports Windows 7 (or higher versions), macOS 10.10 (or higher versions), Android (USB3.1 DP1.2), Chrome OS 88 (or higher versions), and Linux.


To further cater to the varied preferences of creators, the Artist 22 Plus is VESA mount-compatible, allowing for more flexible working and viewing angles. Taking a pioneering step in the industry, this device thoughtfully incorporates a 3.5mm headphone jack, enabling creators to delve into the realms of music or films as they work, ushering in an immersive audio-visual creative experience.
