About The Event
Xposed Gallery is delighted to present “Painted Cities” explores the memory and dream state of a city through the fusion of motion and ink. The digital paintings are created using a unique technique I’ve been researching, which includes multiple forms of Ai, especially Neural Style Transfer to fuse videos with ink, texture, and photographs. It often takes weeks of testing and research before discovering perfect synergy between motion and texture.
The pieces for this series cover painted memories of Rome, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, and elsewhere. Created specifically to challenge the culture of collecting paintings. Mohler hopes these pieces further the digital art movement and open the eyes of traditional collectors to digital mediums that are conceptual, thought provoking, and engaging even while living on a screen.
Nate Mohler is an emerging media artist who works with technology as a paint brush to build conceptual and avant-garde experiences through digital art. A 2019 UCLA graduate with a B.A. in Design | Media Arts, Mohler is intrigued with the fusion of conceptual art and technology to support connectivity and social activism with unconventional space and sound. His work focuses on eliciting action and question through digital mediums such as projection mapping, immersive installations, sculpture and video art. Mohler treats each project as an opportunity to evoke emotion, challenge thought, or support social change.
