Hi I'm Stuart, a media artist who combines computer graphics and creative coding with drawing and painting to make interactive, still and video projects for private and commercial clients.
Our world is rapidly changing and creativity must evolve to meet different needs and future challenges. Through creative coding, by linking painting with building experimental software, I create paintings that are much more than just a surface; they are interactive applications, animated, audible, data-driven and inter-medial.
The process is an artisticlly intimate one with the coding being just as important and expressive to me as the drawing. The oppertunity of creating digital paint that is encoded with behaviour written by the artist excites me, driving me to create new works exploring unusual and unique visuals and to disrupt the notions of art and maths as separate fields.
Alongside my artwork, I actively publish papers and research centring on the development of code combined with drawing - developing tools and technology alongside art that aid in the expressive potential of computers.
Please send an email for any inquiries about gallery and museum exhibitions, screenings, installations, workshops and press.
Also available for commissions for music videos, editorial illustrations, book covers, feature film motion graphics and art direction, live concert visuals, album artwork and more.
Some of the artworks are available for licensing. Please inquire for more information.
