Postcard Color Coded: Gautam Rao  


Color Coded is an exploration of contrasts: between image and text, analog and digital methods and between analytical and aesthetic thinking. Through grid paintings, illustration and typographic experiments, local artist and Butler University professor Gautam Rao brings patrons a year of play at the intersection of art and design.

The exhibit lives in the place where right and left brain thinking meet. This contrast makes for an exciting, dynamic dialogue.


This body of work contrasts highly systematic thinking with a love of the quirky and whimsical. The systematic thinking is embodied in type design and meticulously illustrated alphabet posters. It's embodied in the technological rigor of working with Bézier curves and within strictly dened color palettes. This analytical approach contrasts with the whimsy of unexpected juxtapositions of color,interactive toys and playful drawings.
