With the accelerated development of globalization, ethnic art has gradually become an undeniable force in the field of contemporary design. The application of ethnic art elements not only reflects the characteristics of various ethnic cultures, but also endows design works with unique aesthetic value. By analyzing the expressions of ethnic art elements and their applications in different design fields, the paper aims to explore the innovative means of applying 3D printing technology, virtual reality technology and augmented reality technology to ethnic art elements in contemporary design; meanwhile, it is proposed to conduct in-depth research on local culture, inheriting the concept of sustainable development, and transforming ethnic art elements into modern design elements, which in order to provide reference value for the creation of modern design works with unique cultural styles.
