Welcome, my name is Roy Utley. I am a cancer survivor, artist, and veteran. Since being diagnosed with cancer my life has taken a few new twists and turns. To paraphrase Mike Tyson, everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.
My work focus on revolutionary art and building the Manhattan Project for Peace, which utilizes the full spectrum of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math), the emerging Maker communities, the creatives, art galleries and popup shows from coast-to-coast to transform our culture of war to a culture of peace.
Lately, I’ve been playing with my Raspberry Pi’s, Arduinos, Linux, Python, signal processing, neural networks and computer vision. I also enjoy speaking to people about revolution and cancer survival.
Peace & Love everyone.
Check out my new site PeaceWarrior.com, designed around the art festival Artomatic.
My current show is “This is what a Revolution looks like” and is part of the Artomatic 2017 festival. Artomatic is a month-long art festival in the DC area that is “by artists, for everyone.” My installation can be found on the 9th floor, room #9206.
