Katsu – ‘Memory Foam’
Drone doodles over Kendall Jenner, ‘grafitti bots’ and artistic automatons at The Hole.
Brooklyn-based Katsu uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to create cool compositions and chaotic scribbles. His subversive and stochastic style abounds with torrents of tantalizing tones and pointillistic pep. Splattering surfaces with rich saturation and slapdash streaks, ranging from royal blue to yellow and blood red, the artist’s killer abstractions (some generated from Tensor Flow) exploit tech to tinker with ads, Pop culture and public places. Katsu is a kind a ‘cultural jammer‘ par excellence who fashions new types of cultural production that transcend — rather than merely criticize — the status quo.
Inspired by surveillance systems, autonomous vehicles, graffiti, Post-humanism, digital culture and deep learning, Katsu crafts graphic mirages and pictorial ‘dronescapes’ that expand visual syntax and optical structure. Check out his work below and visit The Hole at 312 Bowery NYC to scoop up his art! And watch this vid to see how the master blaster uses UAVs to make next level stuff.
