Quayola.com is the website of London-based visual artist Quayola, who creates hybrid works that blur the boundaries between art, design and film. Through his work he creates worlds where the real and the artificial co-exist, as can be seen in works such as Rome, Strata #1 and Strata #2. In these works church architecture is transformed by the appearance of geometric, computer-generated shapes which de-contextualises the subject from its historical and cultural significance, focusing the gaze more on the beauty of the subject. See the extract of Strata #2 below.

Quayola recently spoke at Engine’s Ignition panel event at onedotzero_adventures in motion about his work. Look out for the video of the event, which we’ll be posting up on Engine sometime soon.
