An Other Look
Surreal Art of Tom Repasky
by Tom Repasky
About the Book
Many of the images were created as part of a series. Some of the images are stills from animations. All of the images are unique views into the perceptions of life as seen through the eyes of Tom Repasky.
His art has been seen by more than a million people on the Internet during the past few years and his web sites will soon restrict the number of pieces available to view.
I use several 3D programs such as TrueSpace, VUE and Poser to create models and scenes. I often will render numerous variations, sometimes as many as twenty, before selecting "the one" I like and will publish.
I began playing and composing music on his parents piano at age 14, and began writing stories and poetry in the 60's. I discovered painting in the 70s with acrylics and oils. During the 80's my job as an engineer in the computer industry provided access to computers and 3d visualization of scientific data. By 1994 personal computers were beginning to capably support the mathematics necessary for 3d design and visualization. Because of my injuries from a childhood accident, using a paint brush became increasingly painful and so the computer became the brush, the media, and the medium. I called it Digital Art to begin with and then Digital Fine Art. website was published in 1995. Since then it has continued to grow and expand. During the 90's Repasky.com and FlickerLight.org received many awards for art, design, presentation and navigation. I am self trained and developed my style and techniques through years of experimentation and exploration. SurrealDigitalArt.com
