Cody Rutty is an American painter and digital artist whose work focuses on complexity and emergence in layered visuals- a process he describes as 'iterative abstraction.' While running parallel to his analog works, his digital compositions explore both static and animated interpretations of the relationship between the artist, the viewer, and the medium itself in the scope of a rapidly evolving world of art.
Accepted as an artist onto the SuperRare platform in 2020, Rutty experiments with technologies while also spending time with paint and pens in the studio, exploring the bridge between the two in a common aesthetic. Both his traditional and digital works can be found in a growing number of public and private collections throughout the world.
Rutty's work has been featured in numerous publications such as Juxtapoz, has worked with clients ranging from Microsoft to CTA Architects and Engineers, and has garnered awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and various artist in residence programs nationally. He has worked as a full-time studio artist for over a decade and a crypto artist since 2020.
Born in Pocatello, Idaho in 1984, Rutty spent his childhood in Southern California and the four corners area of Colorado, and currently lives in Boise, Idaho with upcoming plans to move to NYC.
