Charles Elwood

Holland, MI, United States

I'm a halfie, a 3rd culture kid or sometimes called an in-betweener. Born half Thai and half American/Danish and having lived in Balikpapan, Indonesia .... Bangkok, Thailand ...and Voorschoten, The Netherlands has filled me up with a rich vocabulary, lots of good food, and I have seen all kinds of amazing art. I grew up experimenting with acrylic paint, chalk, pointillism, but my favorite medium was always oil pastels because the rich colors allowed me to shade and created the illusion of peaks and valleys in my paintings. I applied to 5 schools as an architect, but ended up in civil engineering and then switched to electrical engineering. After college, I worked in Project Management which took me further away from my art. This is my first ArtPrize entry and its great to get back to using art! This first piece uses chalk art, ballet, sign language (which are ancient art mediums), and combines with cursive (a vanishing art medium) and then finishes off with a topping of Artificial Vision Edge Intelligence (brand new medium). The piece is super interactive, the AI model is updated twice a week, and I wanted to inspire others to do amazing things and push on the boundaries of what is possible. Art to me is the greatest form of self expression and also interpretation from the receiver of the art piece!
