Words by the artist – METACHROMATIC is a representation of New Age Art
We aim to frighten the traditionalist.
METACHROMATIC is an ode to industry.
METACHROMATIC is a blend between the artificial and the natural.
METACHROMATIC is delicate and intricately detailed.
METACHROMATIC is bold and dynamic.
METACHROMATIC is fueled by the constant challenges of the digital artist.
METACHROMATIC is an experience.
METACHROMATIC is not computer screensavers.
METACHROMATIC is not cheating at art.
METACHROMATIC is not a computer doing the work for me.
METACHROMATIC is a challenge for the traditionalists and formalists of the art world. Challenging the beliefs of Traditional Art set by white men. Igniting a movement for change. To adapt, learn, unlearn, and experiment.
