Statement by Pygoya



As an artist I have had an enriching if not life fulfilling experience
working within the digital medium. I abandoned
forever sculpture
and traditional painting with the availability
of startup personal
computer graphic tools of 1984. Since then I
have dabbled on
monitors, my own style's development wired to
the ever
expanding potential of consumer hardware and
software
systems. I got better along with the tools I
used, with art and
machine always threatened with obsolescence,
necessitating
the purchasing of endless series of upgraded
"digital paints."

My career as digital artist spans 15 years and
I am proud to
archive the resulting body of works online in
Pygoya
Webmuseum of Cyberart at www.lastplace.com. I
have
become Pygoya, online cyberartist, as my
"computer art" casts
off output mockup reproductions in favor of
exhibiting the
original digital imagery, or cyberart, within
virtual reality galleries
of Truly Virtual Web Art Museum at
www.lastplace.com.

I am proud to be invited to be a part of this
second historic
international India digital art exhibition and I
look forward to
assisting in its travel and installation at the
Lincoln Center in
New York City later this year. I thank Yogi
Copra for his
tremendous dedication and effort to make this
Mumbai show a
reality. He and other Indian digital artists
like Shubhojoy Mitra of
Calcutta are performing vital roles in assisting
India to emerge as
a creative global force of digital art in this
new century of the
Internet.
