Travess Smalley, 27, Digital artist
West Virginia-born Smalley blends computer graphics with physical collage-making. His colorful pieces look like a cross between a painting and a screen saver. One piece has Rothko-like stripes in blues, greens and yellows, with what appear to be cut-outs layered on top. He has had solo shows in New York, Toronto and Milan.
