M.J. Lindow is a generative artist from the western United States. Inspired by art from an early age, he was constantly drawing and painting. To pay for college, he designed and built stained glass windows at a local studio. While at school he became fascinated with code and its ability to multiply human capability and later worked as a data engineer and data analyst building scalable systems to improve human effectiveness. His work as a generative artist grows out of a continued desire to use code to build scalable systems that free creative potential.
Living in close proximity to the Rocky Mountains and the deserts of southern Utah, Lindow developed a lifelong love for the outdoors and is drawn to rugged and inhospitable places. He often incorporates the natural world and the landscapes he loves into his art. Fascinated by using computers to extend human ability, his work shows the hand behind the machine by adding artificial imperfections and ‘hand-drawn’ textures.
