Joelyn Dalit is a New York based designer and artist currently working as an Art Director. His work ranges across a multitude of mediums such as painting, design, sculpture and photography. He received his B.F.A. in Graphic Design from the University of Hawai’i Mânoa in 2016 and since then has specialized in a number of commercial disciplines such as brand design, strategy, short-form film, creative direction, and experiential design, providing a full array of creative services for clients across the globe.
Initially working in editorial and journalism, eventually led to his transition into marketing, printing and digital design. Shortly after college, he placed top 10 among the nation for Newspaper Design of the Year by the Associated College press (2016), received a Pinnacle Award by the College Media Association placing 2nd place overall for Best Weekly Editorial (2016), and was awarded an AIGA 5-0 Design Award in 2017.

Kenny’s code-based artworks capture the beauty, turbulence, and horror of our times. Experience with other mediums (photography, drawing, and stained glass) provided him with contours for the algorithms he writes, which generate colorful and abstract expressions. His artistic process involves composing new code for each work in the R Statistics Language to set up a “blank canvas”. Kenny iteratively writes code, executes the system, and then views the image results. Each algorithm can generate high-resolution images for fine art prints and NFTs (non-fungible tokens).
Prior to writing algorithm-based art, his art experience included drawing, painting, stained glass apprenticeships, as well as nature photography. His artworks have been selected for the permanent art collection at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) where he is a faculty member (2016), the juried annual art publication MUSC Humanitas (2015, 2016, 2020, 2021, 2022), Courtenay Street Art Gallery (2012), and Piccolo Spoleto Annual Juried Art Exhibition (2012, 2022).
