Is a Generative Artist from America, living and working in Saudi Arabia. She chose generative art as her career after earning a MS in Computer Science in 2014. Having been fascinated by code-generated art for more than 20 years, Melissa continuously pushes the boundaries of generative art as a medium, both technically and aesthetically.
Melissa is an Artblocks Curated artist, and released “Sudfah” on Artblocks in June 2022. She has released several collections on fxhash (including “Zbageti”, “Solitude”, “Orbs”, and others), and has also worked on generative Surface Pattern Design, creating dozens of collections to be digitally printed on surfaces of products.
Melissa was influenced in her practice by Jared Tarbell and Tyler Hobbs, many traditional abstract artists, and Islamic art and culture. Her work tends to center on the theme of the paradoxes between order vs. chaos, intention vs. accident, and control vs. randomness. Her work is often colorful and creatively combines blurs, textures, and linework. In recent work, her primary tools of choice are p5.js and GLSL fragment shaders.
Melissa will be participating numerous soon-to-be-announced exhibitions, and she has a growing body of work available to be purchased on OpenSea and fxhash.
