A GRAPHIC ARTIST AND THE COMPUTER
WELCOME TO THE 21st CENTURY AND 3rd MILLENNIUM WHEN ART AND TECHNOLOGY COME TOGETHER!BIOAll my life I've been using paints and brushes to embody my ideas in posters and graphics.
I wouldnt say everything I have done in all these years is senseless, but now looking back I can count on my five fingers the things I would do again.
One of the things I will never regret for and probably the most significant one is that in 1982 I discovered for myself Computer Graphics. Since that moment I have been completely devoted to the computer as a means and a creative partner for the generation of images and animation.
My paints and brushes are dry now but I found myself in the Computer Graphics. With all my due respect towards professional supercomputers and graphic workstations I still think that world wouldn't be the same without the invention of Personal Computer - democratized the creative process, making it more familiar and accessible to everybody.
It's hard to imagine what will be beyond computers, as no one was able to predict the appearance of Personal Computer and Internet. With the help of the latest technology I am trying to look into the near future. As any prediction for the future, and even worst, prediction for the 21st Century and 3rd Millennium I am crystal aware that this is naive.
It sounds like words pronounced by Charles H. Duell, Commissioner, U.S. Office of Patents, 1899 ( Sorry Charles! ) : "Everything that can be invented has been invented."
What else can I say?
