Michael Pierre Price
Techspressionist Artist specializing in Abstract, Algorithmic, and Surrealist Art
Price’s highly conceptual work – a blend of digital art and photography – reflects what he calls his “spiritual-math-physics nexus.” Digital manipulations of nature scenes with shadowy forests, blurry birds and sunbaked deserts speak to his attraction to Native American spirituality, while fractals bursting in colorful patterns are influenced by his love of math and science.
After starting to earn a Ph.D. in theoretical astrophysics from the University of Toledo, Price decided not to pursue academia and went into tabletop game design in the early 1980s – for a company that made a little game called Dungeons & Dragons. He spent 30 years developing toys and games before embarking on his artistic path. “[Science] is a very powerful way to touch the inner dreamer,” Price, 62, says.
