① Artwork:

Citizen 102

The artist created this painting with a custom-built painting drone and specialized software—resulting in aesthetic outcomes made not exclusively from the artist's decisions, but in concert with technology. The artist programs these drones to create portraits, still lifes and abstraction works on a human-sized canvas. This work explores notions of identity and artistic authorship through the collaborative art-making process between a human and a machine.

This painting is part of Citizen, a series by KATSU that extends his use of drones in painting and related new media practices. Other works from this series include large-scale public interventions and performances. The artist's visual and digital projects frequently question notions of reality, fiction and futurism by conceptually integrating ideas of vandalism with commercialism and technology.
