Professor George Wolberg is an internationally acclaimed artist, engineer and inventor who has spent his career bridging the gap between design, technology and art.
Born in Buenos Aires, George moved to New York where he pursued his undergraduate education in electrical engineering at the world-renowned Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art.
George went on to earn a PhD in Computer Science at Columbia University for his ground-breaking work in digital image warping and has been a professor teaching at Cooper University for many years.
George's creation of ‘Pin Art’ (or ‘Pintillism’) is the culmination of his love of art, design, engineering and fabrication.
His artwork is also the product of his fascination with Pointillism, which forms images through the use of many distinct dots and was first developed in the 19th century by Neo-Impressionist painters such as Georges Seurat and Paul Signac.
George's work employs pins on canvas to create the same effect as pointillism but with an added 3D perspective, is tactile and invites the viewer to interact with and touch the art.
