Ron Wild is a western-Canadian Digital Art / Science Collaborator, currently working in downtown Toronto (even though his heart still lives out west of the 100th meridian where the Great Plains begin). Since 2008 he has been a very active member of Toronto’s vibrant visual art scene, regularly collaborating with other media artists as well as scientists and medical researchers. He has presented art projects at Nuit Blanche, MakerFaire, Social Media Week, Luminato, as well as many traditional juried visual art shows. He recently spent a month as an Artist-In-Residence on a tall ship to the North Pole. The 'smART Map' digital art he produces lends itself to exciting New Media opportunities, which he continues to develop with artists around the world. Raw'n' Wild is excited about bringing world-class digital art to the streets of Toronto as a PATCH artist.
My creative process features vibrant mash-ups remixing up to 100 layers of finely detailed digital imagery. I have a knack for playfully collaging disparate images into a cohesive whole. I call them ‘maps’ because they reflect the organic results of the pixel by pixel micro-composing attention I pay to them. My smART Maps generally portray my genuine interests in math + science + engineering + technology + innovation + creativity. In addition, I focus what is special about the here and now of the early 21st century. I find inspiration in blazing new trails in our digital age.
