We’re delighted to welcome Rudy Vogel as one of our new Columnists to theappwhisperer.com. Rudy think of himself as a ‘Renaissance Man’: schooled in several disciplines and a practitioner of commerce, computer science and, most recently my Digital Art, which he has perfected over the last ten years.
Rudy has traveled the world on business and has thereby inculcated the exotic tastes, colors, and aromas of foreign lands from the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Europe and the Caribbean into his work. Having grown and traveled with his father who was in the fashion business, he learned some of his craft through osmosis and instinctually portrays some hints of textile, fabrics, lines and curves into his art.
Rudy has been a photographer since his youth and his eye has thereby been trained to inherently identify interesting patterns, shadows & highlights and composition in virtually every image he sees. He brings these experiences to his art through the use of his computer and the software he has developed to create his unique form of art; and, more recently, the work he creates exclusively with his iPhone 4. Simply put, his art is atypical. No fractals, composites or ‘green screens’ are used; just layered, earthy textures, vibrant colors that coax the spectrum into refraction, architectural lines that lead the eye into space and, lights within shadows. This is how he builds his work, one pixelized brick at a time.
We have previously interviewed Rudy in our A Day In The life series, if you missed that you can read it here. Rudy’s column will be entitled ‘Appstrax’ and will be purely about iPhone art. This is one area that we particularly enjoy and was missing from our great repertoire of Columnist contributions. As our regular readers will be aware, we recently welcomed Richard Koci Hernandez, Kevin Kuster, Dan Marcolina, Keith Tharp, Misho Baranovic and Richard Gray to our team. We are growing at a phenomenal rate and trying to include as much unique content from the mobile photography and mobile art world as our readers can possibly digest, you really don’t need to go anywhere else!
Please join us by welcoming Rudy to theappwhisperer family, welcome Rudy. We’ve just published Rudy’s first article to his new column, don’t miss it, go here to read.
