Clayton Shonkwiler:  Math Professor, Artist

Clayton Shonkwiler is a Math Professor at Colorado State University.  He has no art training, but his mom was an Art History major and his dad was an Architect, so he said that ‘there were always lots of art and architecture books and prints around’.  He started making gifs as a way to illustrate something in a research talk, became hooked on the possibilities and now, several years later, he has built a body of elegant and mesmerizing gif work.  He is part of a trend that I have been noticing of coder artists that I have written about more at length here
