Artist Bio:

Ed Cavett is an established, interdisciplinary, multimedia materials artist from the Pacific Northwest.

A generative artist since 1984, Ed started coding art as a teenager using the BASIC programming language. Over the decades, his work continued in private until the advent of NFTs. After decades of honing his creative coding skills, in 2018, Ed started building generative systems using p5js in order to create valuable, virtual art for collectors of art-NFTs. Ed has shared this journey in a collection of demonstrative and instructional videos available on his YouTube channel, DrawMakeCode.

Ed’s love and discovery of art has been a natural, self-guided process. As an outsider-artist, his knowledge and experience with art has been highly-motivated, passionate and hands-on. His independent study of art and coding began in a small town in the Midwest; later, he studied art independently while living in Chicago, IL, and, then, hosted successful art venues in Iowa City, IA before settling in Ashland, Oregon–home of the World Renowned Shakespeare Festival.

His growth and development as an artist continues as he strives to shape an impression of his passion into the annals of art history. Today, his practical and virtual art is loved and collected by admirers from all over the world.
