Claude19 has been a member of Renderosity since 2006. Based in France, claude19 is a master of fractal art creation. He also is very profilic with over 300 pages of images in his gallery. We very proud that claude19 was voted the AOM for May and congratulate him!

I conducted an interview with claude19 for Renderosity Magazine back in August of 2016. We reprint excerpts from the review below. You can read the complete interview, "ArtFriendly claude19: Mixed Medium and Fractal Artist" here.

ArtFriendly Claude19: Mixed Medium and Fractal Artist

I like how you describe the process of finding the fractal image that pleases you as you work. Are you primarily a self-taught artist or do you have any training? What are some of your goals for the future as an artist?

Claude19: Dear Ricky, your question does not leave me indifferent ... in 2012, I wanted to try to transfer my digital work, in sheets of albums photos! In fact, I completely self-taught, and retired partanjt, having been a systems engineer on UNIX and Informix databases, I certainly did not want to Informatics during leisure ... Alas ... to manage a micro computer, must spend 20% of their time on monitoring the health of his machine ... well, that day our microphones are more competent than it was 15 years UNIX machines.

So, having realized the production of a brochure for an organization where I volunteer, I rubbed me the designers who have taught me a few things ... So I have on my old Quad processurs tower and Windows XP, with 4 gigabytes of RAM tried to achieve two albums one entitled "Essential" and another "Globes" that I edited in each 1ex a German laboratory ... The original images as files are quite large 4000 x 3000 pixels with about 300bpi definition. The result really impressed me ... I dream of one day a photo exhibition, because in France it is the only solution ... the galleries for painters .., and photos can be seen after !!! ArtFriendly Claude

Amazing. No wonder you like to work with fractal imagery as it requires strong technical skills. You mentioned a photo exhibition in France (I hope it happens for you!). Is that where you live? Can you tell us a little about your background and life?

Claude19: I was the brother of a man that my parents had decided smarter than me ... in fact 15 years my brother was pursuing his studies more and our father did join the Navy ... me 20 years, no longer supporting the family atmosphere, I made my stay, quit my studies ... and soon sent to Algeria ... I discovered Africa north of the Sahara, gerbils, toads that come out of the sand after a storm, to croak outdoors! I returned 30 months after I left the army ... I took the Tier degree in business ... I learned the basics of Computer Science (1962) ... I started several once my career, because without diploma as graduate, I had to go up the ladder to every company that hired me !!!

Portrait d'Alien...!!!

I married, I mounted an IT services company ... but I quickly threw in the towel, not being made to be boss ... I worked for want of anything else in the photograph .. .I sold Nikon, the Leicas, ZEISS optics, Canon etc ... have been repeatedly unemployed, my wife suggested I enter dazns administration if possible ... that the was and I worked until the age of 63 years as an engineer systène and UNIX database administrator ... the rest you know! The PHOTO Espo is a dream for which I n 't have the means ... and I'm too old to be difficult ... it is already a joy to exhibit at RR !!!

I am living around NANTES near the Loire !!!

We will be posting a video of 10 hand-picked works from claude19's gallery in the near future. For now, please treat yourself by visiting his remarkable gallery of fractal art.

Les personnes qui connaissent les algorythme et/ou qui sont capables d'en programmer savent oh combien ceux-ci sont de précieux alliés dans de nombreuses tâches au quotidien et non seulement dans l'art graphique ou musical. Bravo pour votre excellent travail et mention bien méritée 👍
