Pygoya, also known as Dr. Rodney Chang, is the first exhibiting digital artist of Hawaii, with the state's first computer art show in 1986 at the Honolulu Club.  Since then the artist has exhibited around the world, including Paris, Russia, Hungary, Germany, China, India, Austria, Las Vegas, California, and New York City.

To prepare himself for a broad vision of life and knowledge, Pygoya stayed in college for 20 years, graduating 10 times, setting a record.
He wrote Mental Evolution and Art about the connection between art and the evolution of human thought, the theory serving as his lifetime approach to creating abstract art. With the intelligent tool of a computer as paint brush, he captures NEW paintings to wet our appetites for a refreshing new visual taste that goes beyond the usual entrees of local overused subject matter.

Currently the artist is founder of a new art movement on the Internet, that of "Webism," with a global following of artists that have adopted his art philosophy of contributing original art to build Internet Cyberculture.
