Jim Plaxco is a digital artist specializing in abstract art, algorithmic art, astronomical art and space art. He is passionate about the creation of art using computer technology. “Art created using the computer is the frontier of art today and for the foreseeable future.

With 20 years of experience in the art of computer graphics, Jim has been witness to the many artistic advances of the digital revolution. In fact some of his art is created using graphics software of his own design.

“The art I choose to create is undertaken as both an intellectual challenge to myself and as a means of promoting those ideas and concepts to which I have a personal commitment.”

Jim has judged art contests for both NASA and the National Space Society, and is a frequent lecturer on space art and astronomical art. As a NASA JPL Solar System Ambassador, he has used his experience with both astronomical and planetary image processing to create astronomical and planetary art using data from a variety of space missions to illustrate his educational presentations.
