Digital witchdoctor goes fractal at 4Faces Café

A stunning example of Mike Mahalo's work.

The work of “digital witchdoctor” Mike Mahalo launches tonight at the photo gallery at 4Faces Café, in an exhibition entitled Angkor Enchantment.

Café owner and curator Eric de Vries says that Mahalo’s work is based on photos but he employs a special digital process to get to the end result.

“When you stand close to his work it’s made up of lots of little dots, but when you step back you see the work as a whole,” explained De Vries.
Mahalo, for his part, describes his work as “fractal digital art”.

He says, “I am both a musician and an artist. My work is somewhere in between photography and fine art, but my technique is influenced primarily by the modern music studio.

“My digital effect tool box is deliberately inspired by specific processes used in sound engineering, such as multi-channel compression, EQ, the guitar fuzz box, delay, echo, multi-track recording and final mastering.”

If that sounds confusing, the best tip is to go see for yourself. The exhibition opens at 7pm this evening.
