Hello, I am a recent graduate of Middlebury College, where I studied geography and computer science with interests in art history, sociology, and design. My art practice revolves around drawing, painting, and digital/generative techniques. Many of the drawings and paintings on this page are for sale. Alternatively, I would be happy to sell prints of any image on this page for a lower price. If you have any questions, please reach out at email@example.com. For more recent work, find me on Instagram @zachlevitt.
In a 300x300 pixel digital image in RGB color space, there are approximately 7.059 x 10649765 possible images to be created. Despite the refrain that new imagery is impossible, this series of work explores the potential of digital imagery for novel compositional and formal creations. Through generative processing of thousands of historical paintings from wikiart.org, these images represent attempts to engage with art history through contemporary digital techniques. These works are generated using Python image processing libraries such as scikit-image and Pillow.
These collages, created with Adobe Illustrator, take elements from a range of media including historical paintings, photographs, text, and maps.
This series recreates imagery such as 35mm photography, drawings, paintings, and historical artworks using Python and text-based outputs in Terminal.
These images are created by using p5.js to consider how paintings and drawings on paper can be decontextualized and reimagined in the digital realm. I try to use these digital sketches to attempt seemingly basic or simple visual ideas that may lead to larger projects.
