Belgium artist Dirk Monteny says "The chilly side of art is where my work is positioned. I hope it is not too distant to be seen." Not from where Coxsoft Art stands! For "chilly" read "cool". The latter implies sophistication in addition to goosebumps. Dirk studied traditional art techniques and photography in Brugge Art Academy and computer art at AKI Art Academy in the Netherlands. His graphics combine advanced fractal algorithms with artistic flare and restrained use of colour. The results can be eerie and alien, yet strangely familiar, like the bronze shield above that appears to be a shell. According to his record at Renderosity, he's posting on average a new graphic every two days. I can't wait for him to set up his own website and specify the fractal algorithms he's using. Are they his own or is he putting artistic gloss on existing algorithms? See more at Art4Heart.
