In this project, in collaboration with Local Language, the Oakland based creative studio, I was honored to create four mosaic portraits of renowned computer pioneers: Tommy Flowers, Graham Bell, Michael Faraday, and Charles Babbage. These artworks were commissioned to embellish the rooms of the prestigious Shashi Shoreline Hotel, located in the heart of Silicon Valley.
As an artist with a deep fascination for the intersection of art and technology, I am humbled to have had the opportunity to create portraits that pay tribute to these distinguished individuals who have significantly contributed to the development of the computing industry.
The Shashi Shoreline Hotel, located in one of the most technologically advanced regions globally, provided a perfect platform for exhibiting these artworks. As guests explored the hotel's rooms, they encountered pieces highlighting the legacy of these pioneers and their impact on computing technology

Charles Babbage: 
English mathematician and inventor who conceived the idea of a programmable computer, the Analytical Engine, considered the forerunner of modern computers.
