Manfred Mohr

Born in: 1938


Famous artist

Manfred Mohr, a pioneer in the digital art genre, was born in 1938 in Germany. His work is internationally famous and has earned him a place in many collections such as the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Montreal, etc.

He started out in abstract expressionism but eventually abandoned this genre, which didn't guarantee a high enough level of accomplishment and consistency of ideas, and turned to the rationality of computer code instead.

As a jazz musician, he sees his art as « visual music ». Computers are for him an extension of his body, a tool which infallibly completes the work begun by his imagination in order to lead to a concept. He loves seeing elements fit together perfectly in order to build something, all via a mathematical formula.

The algorithms he chooses generate sketches such as geometric shapes, an alphabet, cubes, etc. Manfred Mohr enjoys achieving these abstract results from something that started from rational geometry.
