About this Event
Join us at our Mayfair gallery for an exciting IRL minting experience, powered by fx(hash). Featuring renowned generative artists Elsif, Galo Canizares & Olga Fradina, we invite you to mint an edition from their latest collection and watch it come to life in real time.
Whether an experienced digital art collector or new to the space, we welcome you for an evening of networking, education and art appreciation.
Live minting opens Wednesday 27th September at 10am BST, with music & refreshments from 6 – 10pm BST.
Elsif is a Chinese-Canadian visual artist and computer scientist, currently living in California. She has always had a keen interest in art and started drawing realistic portraits of people at a very young age as a way to learn facial features to cope with face blindness. She was drawn to programming due to its infallibility and ability to automate and expedite what would otherwise be repetitive tasks. With a focus on experimentation in techniques and expression, Elsif creates digital art with geometric shapes and parametric curves, using lots of maths, some physics, and occasionally some machine learning. She also draws inspiration from both Eastern and Western cultures, demonstrating the beauty of algorithmic motifs and their connection to nature and human perception.
Galo Canizares also known as itsgalo, is a designer, writer, and educator working across various creative fields from architecture to digital art to experimental software. His work interrogates our ongoing relationship to software culture. Through animation, limited colour palettes and low-res graphics he recalls the strange behaviours and aesthetics of digital media and connects his work to the history of computer-based art. His artwork has been included in exhibitions worldwide, including Imperfections at Verse, London; Parallel Rules at a83 Gallery, Soho, New York and Bit by Bit at the Seattle NFT Museum, Seattle. He is currently an assistant professor of architecture at the University of Kentucky’s College of Design.
Olga Fradina is a generative and digital artist from Ukraine. She has been an interior designer for over twenty years, with considerable experience and international recognition in this field. In the last year and a half, Fradina has become devoted to researching and producing generative art. She works with procedural 3D graphics and creative coding, looking for a personal approach to the creative possibilities of artificial intelligence. Fradina’s works are characterised by abstract and biomorphic forms, as well as a focus on the study of emotional states. Her creative practice is interested in the dynamic relationship between human and machine creativity.
