Minimalism is not just a style, it is a whole philosophy of attitude to life. Clarity of composition, monochrome and emphasis of natural textures are important for minimalism.The minimalist designer usually takes as a basis one or two colours (favourite of which, white – which most emphasizes the lines of objects).
The main object of my generative art are whales. As I love the art of minimalism, my intentions were to create something detailed minimalistic; using only three colours ( white, violet and light violet).
Whales represent something big, strong and powerful. They also are free in their actions; they have all the unknown ocean to themselves and make up their own rule of living. I can relate this to the life of an artist; artists have many opportunities, and a freedom of creativity to express themselves through many forms of art.
My two main figures are whales. Using adobe illustrator I created many thin lines in the shape of a whale and placed both of the figures in a circular shape to create a sense of motion. As well as I created wavy lines at the background to illustrate water. After, I placed many random lines to point to the whales; make them more emphasized and centred.
There are many forms of art that are unknown to many artists, however it is a journey to discover and an enjoyable process of learning and creating new art. The same as the ocean is so wide, deep and unknown – so is the art.
I love the sense of simplicity and aesthetics. Thus, it was the main goal for this generative art project.
- Use Adobe Illustrator to create this rule
Upload an image to the illustrator that you would like to recreate
Take the brush tool and draw around the image using different shapes
Take one part of the tracing image and go to Object and then Blend (fix the parameters to your own preference in Blend Options)
Make the entire image Blend
- You can play around with the different shapes; they will create different outcomes
