Full Description

Tyler Hobbs’ debut monograph is one of the first to focus on the work of a generative artist. Contextualizing his output over the past four years in particular, the book will also include works from Hobbs’ recent solo exhibitions at Unit London and Pace New York in 2023.

Structured around the concept of dualities, the monograph explores Hobbs’ systematic approaches to art-making that still allow room for the unexpected, the creative relationship between man and machine, computer-led aesthetics and the interplay of repetition and variation across long-form generative projects. The monograph includes an interview between Hobbs and Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries, and essays by Melanie Lenz, Curator of Digital Art at the Victoria & Albert Museum, and Jason Bailey, co-founder and CEO of ClubNFT.

This book will be released in a limited edition of 999 that mirrors the number of algorithmically generated works in Hobbs’ renowned Fidenza collection.

About the Author

Tyler Hobbs (b. 1987) is a visual artist from Austin, Texas. His work focuses on computational aesthetics, how they are shaped by the biases of modern computer hardware and software, and how they relate to and interact with the natural world around us. By taking a generative approach to art making, his work also explores the possibilities of creation at scale and the powers of emergence. Hobbs’ most notable project, Fidenza, is a series of 999 algorithmically generated works comprising one of the most sought-after fine art NFT collections of all time. His drawings, paintings, and digital works have been privately collected around the world. In 2021, Hobbs was part of the group exhibition, titled Transformations, at Unit London. His solo exhibitions include, Mechanical Hand (2023), at Unit London, UK; Progress (2018) at Galería Dos Topos in León, Mexico, and Incomplete Control (2021) at Bright Moments Gallery in Manhattan, New York. Additionally, his work was included in a Christie’s auction in 2021, and a Sotheby’s auction in 2022. Hobbs holds a BS in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Austin.
