About Angie

Angie Taylor is a VR Artist, Sculptor & animator.
Her work has a mashup style – somewhere between naïve art, pop-art & punk. Her work juxtaposes the DIY ethic of punk, fresh immediacy of naïve art & complexity of VR & 3D technology.

She explores themes of isolation. Her work often champions the misfits of society & the geeks. Her illustrations have a 1980’s retro style. Influences: Basquait, Laurie Anderson, Yoko Ono, Jamie Reid, Robert Crumb, Jacob Epstien, Linder Sterling.

 

After graduating from art school in the 1980’s, Angie became a motion graphic designer. She was a demo artist for Adobe in the 1990’s, writing books and giving seminars on motion graphics and animation.

Angie has had a long and varied career. With stints as a deejay, prop-maker, motion graphic designer and software demo artist she has a huge amount of experience in digital media. She was a pioneer of the digital motion graphics revolution in the late eighties and early nineties. You can see some excerpts from of her work here.

You can see Angie talk about her work here in this candid interview with John Dickinson from Motionworks.
