About the Artist

Michael Powers is an artist based in Maui. His works include oil paintings and images generated from individually trained AI 'brains' that create new work at the boundaries of artistic expression.

In this new era of smart networks that are learning to drive cars, create viral memes and master other skills that we once believed only people could do well he asks the question in his artwork, 'how do we partner with computers that are starting to express themselves artistically?'
