I was born in Vrtojba in Slovenia on 10th December 1949. After graduating from grammar school in Nova Gorica, I registered at the Faculty of mechanical engineering in Ljubljana and gained degree in 1974. It was in the faculty preparing my diploma that I came into contact with a computer and data processing for the first time. It was the time of punched cards and remote batch terminals. That was a turning point in my life and I entered in the world of computers leaving forever a field of mechanical engineering. My firs job was in the domain of information science. In my informational technologies career in several companies in Slovenia I was engaged in developing and programming commercial and business applications. Now I am a pensioner and I live and work as a freelance artist in Vrtojba, close to Nova Gorica.
All those years being in contact with computer programming never disappear from my mind the crazy idea that a computer can do more than simply data processing. I had in mention the possibility to simulate the human creativity especially in the area of visual art. This challenge caused the development of a very interesting project that was my favourite occupation in my free time from the year 1983. I developed a lot of programs using generative approach to generate always new and unpredictable pieces of visual art. Each artwork created using my genetic designed software is an absolute unique item and could be lost forever if not saved or printed. Often I used to organize exhibitions and live presentation, to publish articles and papers with the intention to propagate the basic idea of generative art method (soban-art.com).
