BIO
Gabriel Mott is an artist riding the wave of the digital revolution by exploring light, color and human interaction. His paintings, sculpture, and interactive installations have been shown internationally. Before moving to Maui in 2003, he graduated with honors from UC Berkeley and worked in Silicon Valley with virtual reality. His studies with Maui color master Dick Nelson sparked an epiphany that led him to create the Colorbox, a room of color that responds to body movement. His work is in collections in the United States and Europe.
