MemeBots (pronounced MEEM-Bots) are depictions of robots that represent memes. A total labor of love, I do it for fun and to create something analog. – BZA
BZA (pronounced ‘biz-uh’) is the creator of the lowbrow robot art he calls MemeBots. He combines his love of graphic art styles and machines with a focus on bold shapes, color and contrast.
A child of Washington DC he has grown with the city and been influenced by the art, music and tech communities.
I prefer my art to be bright, playful and unpretentious. I see art as a vehicle to put color on display and inject pigments into life. Glossy, almost candy-like acrylics tend to by my medium of choice.
In my art I see lines being equally as important as the spaces that they delineate. I use them to add expression when constructing compositions and view them as the skeleton holding together positive & negative spaces.
To unite these concepts I’ve chosen robots and the light-hearted mental imagery that is conjured up by early visions of autonomous technology. Androids with personalities that mimic the distinctive traits of memes, and become memes in their own right, are my goal.
