A former UEA American Studies professor has had his digital artwork exhibited at Norwich Cathedral.

digital art exhibition

Howard Temperley, 80, creates computer-drawn works by digitally manipulating photographs taken in and around Norwich. He seeks to capture the essence of Norfolk by depicting its landscapes, seascapes and people in a refreshing new medium.

In recent years several artists have found experimenting with the possibilities of digital art rewarding, adopting technology in their artistic process. Mr Temperley, who stumbled upon the art form by accident, said the process creates “cutting edge stuff”, and that “this is a new kind of art. It is digital work for a digital age.”

The exhibition was sponsored by UEA as part of its 50th anniversary celebrations, and featured a vibrant selection of contemporary artworks.
