"A while ago, Mimi asked me why I started generative art in the first place. I started creating my work which is a recent style, not because I had a passion for ”generative art” nor because I chose to do ”generative art”. I was just interested in a certain phenomenon, and as I began to create works of art, I came to realize that this is called "generative art". That's all." — qubibi
The artist's compositions are organic, abstracted and imbue a spiritual presence. They are colorful creations that range from chaotic and improvisational to careful and considered, seeking to show the deeper reality beyond the physical world.
"I don’t like to use the word mystical to describe art but there is something universal, transcendent, mysterious, and perhaps even spiritual, in each of the forms from the series. Part of the fascination for me comes from wondering just how long the artist can go without repeating himself, the subtle diversity across dozens of works has me returning daily to follow the evolution." — Jason Bailey
qubibi has used art direction, design, and programming techniques to create various projects with on-screen media, winning numerous awards including D&AD and the Cannes Advertising Prize. In 2017, qubibi held his first solo exhibition, "the Qubibi Exhibition" at MuDA, Zurich. In 2010, qubibi released his video work "hello world", which uses a unique real-time animation algorithm. With its filmic texture and continuous temporal structure, this meditative work provides an innovative take on generative art.
