I’m a 90’s kid from a small country in the middle of Europe – no beaches or cities, just hills and villages! The only thing I ever did growing up was create more of digital art, and designing things from pixels and vectors.
I was always into computers as a child. Eventually when playing video games started to grow boring for me, I tried my hand at editing photos and creating images. Back in those says digital art was without any Internet, so that made me more experimental and the process more challenging. The best times of my life!
I don’t think I can pick and choose. I like to explore new, variant styles and/or mix them up. I’ve somehow looked at glitches as a problem, so I added colour into them to make them beautiful and change the perception. I also love to change original subjects of images into abstract, colorful deformations.
Firstly I explore the colors, and then I look for the shapes. The magic happens when two or more energies collide, so I just go with it to eventually create fascinating art. It’s hard for me sometimes to express how the process looks like, so I just let me art do the talking.
I felt that Facebook/Instagram quality of video was always a little glitchy, so I chose Giphy as a platform for my animations. They can be perfectly used for projections, live wallpapers, digital frames, VJ clips or everyday use on social media. I’m happy to say that some of my GIF’s have more than a million views – I’m not sure how, but it sure does motivate me to keep creating!
Usually people asking me for visuals or covers. I also love and work for music labels. Visualization of the music is one of my favorite to create! I also do fresh cloth designs, posters, stickers or brand logos.
I’m proud of every single product that I’ve done to be honest. If I had to choose, I’d say the triple grid on my Instagram page is my favorite.
Im old school! A couple years old computer, Photoshop, After Effects and the good old internet. I just deform random photos until I feel like the magic appears. The process takes several day and sometimes weeks. Once a month I choose few images I like best, which I set as final artworks.
This is my official invitation for lovers of digital art and design to follow me on my journey that I have started. You can have a look at my new styles on my recently launched website: www.roberthruska.com
I recently updated all categories so check me out and feel free to contact me with any question or to just say hello. There is lot of platforms which support artists and show or sell their artworks. Please support them all. It’s very important for the community, because artists supports artists. I hope 2020 will be super for everyone around!
