Hi! I'm Monica Dinculescu, a creative coder and generative artist currently living in California. My work examines the geometries found in nature and simplifies their shapes as digital art pieces using mathematics.
I "program" my art on a computer by creating code that intentionally introduces randomness in its output. While this means that I can't predict exactly what each of my programs will create, I do control where and how the randomness enters the artwork. I then curate hundreds of outputs from each program until I find the artwork that is the closest to what I had in mind when starting that piece. I find that generative art lets me focus more on the creative aspects of art, and forces me to work around the technical limitations of the medium.
I also dabble in traditional media formats like pastels and watercolours, which might make an appearance in the store one day when I find sharing them less intimidating.
Thank you for supporting me and my small artist dreams!
Each non-customizable artwork runs as a limited edition, of usually 10 prints, which I print myself. To distinguish between individual artworks in an edition, each print is labelled and signed in the order that it's printed.
If you are interested in a custom artwork, or one that is no longer available, please email me using the contact form and we'll work something out! If you're looking for the shipping fine print, please check out the delivery and returns page.
The logo is of me and my cat, and was designed by Yuna Lu.
