Rudy Rucker, Los Gatos, California
Member Since February 2007
Artist Statement Rudy Rucker is a well-known science-fiction writer who enjoys painting surreal Pop SF scenes that are often related to incidents in his books. His favorite artists include Bruegel, Hieronymus Bosch, Rene Magritte, Wayne Thiebaud, R. Crumb and Carl Barks.

Born in Kentucky in 1946, he studied mathematics, earning a Ph. D. in the theory of infinite sets. He worked first as mathematics professor, then as a computer science professor, coming to rest in Silicon Valley, where he now paints, photographs, and writes novels full time.

Rucker has published over 30 books, mostly speculative fiction. A founder of the cyberpunk school of literature, Rucker also writes in a realistic/fantastic style known as transrealism.
Rucker took up painting in 1999 while doing research for his historical novel about the life of Peter Bruegel, As Above, So Below. He often paints pictures as a way of imagining the worlds of his novels such as The Hacker and Ants, The Hollow Earth, Frek and the Elixir and Mathematicians in Love. and Postsingular.

Note that many of his Paintings gallery works are also for sale as originals; see the "Rudy's Paintings" page on his home site for more information about purchasing the original paintings.

As well as writing and painting, Rucker spends an inordinate amount of time photographing and writing for his photo-illustrated blog, www.rudyrucker.com/blog.
