Geometric Robot Drawings: Beautiful Precision from Matt W. Moore

Wednesday 01.01.2014 , Posted by
Matt W Moore Robot Drawings 1

Matt W. Moore is drawing outside the box, challenging our definition of art with his Numerically Controlled Series of “drawings.” Here he collaborates with engineer Aaron Panone to harness the power of a 3-axis CNC machine to draw his geometrically stunning works. The machine, retrofitted with a special fixture, holds a Sharpie permanent marker and mimics the pressure of a hand while drawing. Is it art? Is it design? While the definition of this work is unclear, the result is beautiful precision. [Read more...]

Saturday 04.20.2013 , Posted by

Sairah Ali Paintings 3

With stark contrasts of organic and geometric form, Sairah Ali paints a world of colorful animals. Each of her paintings features a central animal figure – realistically rendered – while the background pops into bold multicolored pattern. Although not organic in form, the backgrounds are hued to inspire visions of nature: fields, the sky or the jungle. In this way, what could be two clashing elements form a beautiful and inspired whole. [Read more...]

A Fantasy of Geometric Landscapes

Thursday 11.15.2012 , Posted by

Ok, confession time. Unlike what seems to be about 99% of the current population, I am not a huge fan of video games. That doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the near addictive fun they are to play… in fact I almost stay away for that reason. I’ll tell you what would get me playing though: seeing digital artist JR Schmidt design a serious adventure game. [Read more...]

Simply Illustrated: An Interview with Ty Wilkins

Thursday 05.10.2012 , Posted by

Do you ever wonder what happened to that kid in your kindergarten class who could make the Taj Mahal out of building blocks? These beautifully arranged illustrations are the handy work of that kid all grown up, Ty Wilkins. When you see his work it makes a lot of sense that he was first a designer, and then migrated into the world of illustration. His uncanny ability to create full illustrations with only the most basic shapes is a big indicator… and he made a note to mention that the same process he went through in making logos, he did for his illustrations. Despite the apparent simplicity, he is able retain a high level of sophistication in his work, which is what really is impressive. [Read more...]

Geometric Order Amidst Starling Chaos

Wednesday 05.09.2012 , Posted by


A murmuration of starlings may seem random, but one artist has found the geometric order to this phenomenon of nature in her work. About six months ago a video flooded the internet of two women out on a canoe while a murmuration of starlings danced above their heads. After the video went viral, murmurations have been a hot topic online and even in art. Catherine Ulitsky, an artist living in western Massachusetts, captured the unique flock patterns of the starling murmurations on camera and gave order to the seemingly random group by painting connections between the birds. In each photograph, Ulitsky uses vibrant colors and straight lines to create beautiful geometric patterns in one of natures great phenomena. “Carefully observing natural phenomena reminds me constantly of the limitless complexity and wonder of the world we inhabit,” said Ulitsky of her work.

The Urban Landscape Transformed by Geometric Tape

Monday 04.16.2012 , Posted by

Urban spaces transform into florescent geometric illusions in artist Aakash Nihalani’s unique yet temporal works. He uses bright lines of tape to single out elements of the city landscape, giving them the look of having more dimensions than they actually have: doorways pop out of their flat walls, homeless people sit on seemingly raised platforms and highlighted bricks fall out of place.
