Part of Lesson Plan: Artist Emulation: Film Director and Visual Artist
Activity Overview / Details
Emulate: to imitate or reproduce the style of another in an original work
Read and discuss the biographies of artists, Manetas and Pollock:
Miltos Manetas began making paintings In 1995, some time after he had become a devotee of computers and mastered image-processing software, so it is no surprise that laptops, Zip drives, data cables, and digital-game components populate his works. But beyond providing subjects for still lifes and props for figure studies, the "coolness" of computer technology, its cut-and-paste power over images, has led the artist to an analogous casualness about the vocabulary of painting that permits him to freely sample styles of rendering and strategies of composition.
