Robert Hirst

Roberto Castro

His work explores the relationship between chance, randomness, probability and the natural human impulse to seek visual structure.

With diverse influences from Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana and Roy Lichenstein of the American Pop Art movement to Contemporary Artists like Thomas Downing, Yayoi Kusama, Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst, his goal is to explore these connections through digital art, marrying aesthetic principles with colour theory and data visualizations, generated using by his own developed statistical and graphical computing software, and pseudo-random number generation.

Having worked as a professional engineer, tend to focus on the most significant aspects of the job at computers and try to assess what are the essential features of a visual experience, consequently tend to favour abstraction and minimalism . All unnecessary detail are eliminated and only the important and significant is captured and emphasized.

His patterns of dots of different adjoining colours usually produce a kinetic and vibrant effect when viewed close up. From afar, the cavalcade of different colours merge together and create colorful landscape-like elements. Him love using bright, cheerful colours and to express the thrill of being alive and concentrate on creating happy and cheerful images, that give a pleasant sensation to the viewer.
