Stuart Faromarz Batchelor is a fine artist and computational painter who combines physical media with computer processes, showcasing a beautiful union between traditional and programmatic art techniques.
“Painting with code and coding with paint”.
Private and corporate commissions undertaken.
Formerly a computer graphics engineer and interactive developer for commercial installations, Stuart’s current work focuses on combining physical and intuitive drawing with computer processes and complex systems.
Building his own software and hardware, Stuart seeks to develop tools and technology alongside art that aid in the expressive potential of computers.
By examining life using both the painter’s observational eye and the algortist’s procedural logic, Stuart combines gesture with data, physical understanding with procedural design - discovering ideas through the performance of artmaking by engaging all senses when using the computer.
Working between coding and painting in the same session, Stuart creates generative, moving, still and installation pieces to explore visual phenomena and the relationship between maths, nature and our perception of meaning.
