About Monica Rizzolli

Monica Rizzolli is a self-taught coder who uses an ecological approach to art-making, viewing humans, art, and code as components of nature. Via botanical motifs, Rizzolli creates collections of unique works that stem from a single code. Rizzolli was drawn to generative art for the mediums' conceptual potential to represent all manner of possible scenarios. Rizzolli began as a painter, and began studying creative programming while at Kunsthochschule Kassel, Germany. The artist presented her first generative work in 2015, at MAK Center for Art and Architecture funded by the MAK-Schindler research grant. In Brazil, the artist co-created the creative programming meeting, Noite de Processing, at Garoa Hacker Clube and was involved in organising the Processing Community Day Brazil. In design, Rizzolli has developed generative magazine covers, fabric designs, and typefaces with Tony de Marco, including Tomorrow for Google Fonts. In 2021 she launched the Fragments of an Infinite Field series on the Art Blocks platform, which solidified her position in the generative art field.
