Bruce Lenkei (The Real Bruce Lenkei) is a graphic designer living in Brooklyn who's been creating artwork in various forms since childhood. For the past few years he's been using his spare time to make abstract digital paintings. Since he's never displayed them before, he's not entirely sure what they look like when transferred to paper. His main goal is to own a record company, so that he can design all the CD covers himself, and combine his two main interests, art and music.
Henry Lowengard (Nemo) has been making art on computers since 1971. This videotaped piece is created on old equipment (Amiga 3000) but with all new material. It uses animation created by his program Vapor Paint and "interactive" animation by his programs FRAX and other custom made stuff.

Tony Saunders has been painting for a good portion of his life and still hasn't gotten the right blend of fleshy delight and geometrical rigor. Still trying, though. Here are some watercolor studies, also he has some digital proofs for you to look at. Think of this latest work as warm ups for a gigantic mural he's sure is just around the corner.
