Daring digital art that conjures the near future
Following his entering the doctorate program in physical engineering at the University of Tokyo, John Hathway engaged in scientifically-informed design works and the development of robots, as well as a body of wide-ranging creative artwork that spans painting, design, video, and 3D illustration.
Through these creative works grounded in a philosophy of science and information, he launched fully into the production of an oeuvre that displays the sensibilities and theoretical understanding of a former scientist.
In terms of art, Hathway has continually produced highly experimental pieces that draw on his unique position as a former researcher grounded in the science of information.
In addition, he has deep interest in traditional Japanese art and has remade Edo period folding screens in new ways.
His piece for this exhibit, Anti-Gravity City, was created from an astonishing four thousand digital layers, a feat that would be equivalent to creating four thousand printed works.
John Hathway has produced ten pieces of this work in a full-size limited edition.
Each piece is signed by the artist.
Only 10 Limited Editions. for Art Museum and Art Collectors.
