My interests lie in traditional art forms such as painting and sketching, but through computer graphics, I have gained to exposure to various styles of art including Op Art, pixel art, and comic creation. I enjoy exploring shapes and colours; my recent work usually involves mathematical structures as a basis plus hand-drawn elements.
Nine Suns
40cm x 40cm
Digital print
2012
This design was inspired by Victor Vasarely's 'Vega' series which consists of spherical distortions on polychromatic grids. Each of the nine suns was created by superimposing a radial pattern on the warped grid. The different colour schemes draw the viewer's attention to different parts of the suns.
Jewelled Dome
40cm x 40cm
Digital print
2012
This design was inspired by Victor Vasarely's 'Vega' series which consists of spherical distortions on polychromatic grids. The decorative jewel-like pattern was created by interlacing two warped grids.
Op Tree
40cm x 40cm
Digital print
2012
The outlines of this design were generated by an algorithm that uses heat-flow simulation to create a particular style of Op Art similar to Victor Vasarely's 'Zebra'. The algorithm creates a grid pattern that conforms to the input tree silhouette.
