Marc Gumpinger‘s artworks focus on the dialog between man and technology. They are a distillation of his many years of experience in the software and tech field: After initial steps on his C64 at nine years old, while still at school in the early 90s he published computer and games graphics along with 3D visualizations. Afterwards, he developed industry-leading image processing software, graduating in business administration and earning his PhD in human biology with a focus on information technology and statistics.
Following the introduction of the iPhone, Marc founded a start-up for creative gaming components, which he turned into the world’s biggest mobile gaming network, which was acquired by BlackBerry in 2011. Since 2015 he has been merging his experience and creativity in artworks, visualizing the aesthetics of this new technology-shaped generation. His works are in collections such as the Allianz Art Collection throughout Europe, USA and Asia.
For this series Gumpinger used bleeding edge technology from algorithms to procedural visual effects software. In his general practice he turns these motives into oil paintings. For DAHJ he made the exception of providing the raw rendered motives.
