My name is Joe and I make art / paintings in providence, Rhode Island. I started working with stencil art in 2013 and made multi-layered paintings on canvas. My goal has always been to create street art murals, after being exposed to that culture in an art history class. Now I use my background in Computer Science to explore the bridge between computational concepts and traditional art / design. With the rise of automation and AI, will robots be able to create art? If a human isn't behind the paintbrush, can it be considered art? What even is art? I’d like to see what this could look like by acting as a middleman between the computer and the canvas.
