As a community and rapidly growing industry – creative coding & generative art – is changing so fast and welcoming more and more creatives. But we noticed there was no centralized directory of all the amazing creative coders and generative artists out there!
So this is an (ongoing & growing list) of amazing creative coders & generative artists. If we’re missing anyone – please let us know on Twitter.
In the meantime, enjoy and get inspired by following these trailblazing creative artists!
An artist working with code.
He is a contributor to open source arts-engineering toolkits like openFrameworks, and builds tools that allow artists to use new algorithms in creative ways.

Creative technologist/UX designer Google Creative Lab. Experimenting across design + tech.
Follow Irene’s work online:
A multidisciplinary artist and toolmaker who studied computer science and art at Carnegie Mellon University before working on bioinformatics at Rockefeller University.
I am currently pursuing Morphogen, a generative design company and developing GanBreeder, a massively collaborative creative tool and network.
My works are somewhere in the region between art, design and research and inspired by the systems of biology computation and creativity.
Follow Joel’s work online:
An artist, researcher and philomath from Istanbul, Turkey, working with computation as a medium to explore the intersections of science and spirituality; and collisions between nature, science, technology, ethics, ritual, tradition and religion.
Working with algorithms and custom software he combines critical and conceptual approaches with investigations into form, movement and sound; designing behavioural abstractions and data dramatizations of natural and anthropogenic processes. His outputs span moving images; video, sound and light installations and performances.

I am an artist and educator based in New York City. I create artwork with code, and focus on building experimental drawing and animation tools.
I make interactive environments that invite participants to become performers. My main focus is how computation can be used as medium for poetry.

Making generative graphics.
Generated Space is the result of a year-long endeavour to make computers do unexpected things.
It presents a wide range of different generative algorithms; from organic flow fields and particle systems to rigid fractals and grammar-based shapes. Some more serious than others.

I’m a Berlin-based artist interested in constructing realities. My research involves biocomputation and tactile interaction. I build interactive audiovisual systems and the cultivate digital and physical creatures.
I often use C++ in conjunction with simulation frameworks and physically-based renders. For the past year I’ve been working on computational geometry problems in the field of photogrammetry.

Using video games tools to explore and experiment new ways of perceiving realities.
Dreaming about image filters and distortion effects in a land of singing pixels and dancing polygons.

Creative coder, medical radiation physicist.
Follow Frederik’s work online:
I visualize data, create generative art, experiment with technology and combine my passion for graphics with the art of programming.
