Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.

Pablo Picasso, 1968
Other Opinions on Pygoyan Art        Pygoya's Emails

Art meets life!
Pygoya's look is brilliant, fluid spectral color flowing through abstract inner (and outer) spaces.
Dream-like and subtle figures appear and disappear. A soft crepuscular light infuses these
inner landscapes with mystery and imagination. They are self-luminous, self-transforming
and ever changing. Old meets new. East meets West. Molecules meet electrons. The past meets
the future as Art meets Life!
Larry Lovett, M.S.Ed, Columbia University, NYC, NY - August 1999

Btw, it's your work that made me want to send you my url. I came across it
via a link to the Las Vegas Museum and you stopped me in my tracks! I
thought to myself "This artist knows how to have fun and will understand
what I'm trying to do".
Elenyte Paulauskas-Poelker August 2000

> It is a pleasure to host you and to see your work. I am amazed
> at what you can do with pixels! Your exhibit is quite popular with 
  the viewers. 
Dr. Sudha Achar, Chair, East Hawaii Cultural Center, July  2001

I must have lived on Mars for a very long time, as only now I realized
that Dr. Rodney Chang and the "legendary" Pygoya are the same
person!!!!! It must be because I rarely read about the artist himself
and tend to look at the work. Cannot believe it: I have admired your
work for such a long time...I find it in fact a source of inspiration in
those days when the "Muse" seems to have abandoned me. And to think that
you have liked some of my work is not only something quite difficult for
me to fully take in, but also something which I feel so very honoured
and intimidated by. I feel now even a greater responsibility towards my work.

Dr. Fernanda Steele, Jamaica, December 2001

Pygoya is pure energy! - Ingrid Kamerbeek, Germany, January 2002

Pygoya: one of the best-known and most popular imaging (& dance-art) artists we come across thus
far. Amongst the many extraordinary projects that Dr. Rodney Chang is associated with or has
deployed himself is a 3D museum for his artworks on the web.

Pygoya's Post-Calcutta Trip Exhibit
online debut: February 27,  2000

I did have time to look at your mails and check out the new post-Calcutta paintings with friend/colleague, Krishnendu. They were fabulous: I could've never guessed that you would go back and paint those scenes that surrounded you, those that we are constantly surrounded by... that grows into us inspite of our resistance to it, or even indifference.
-Shubhojoy Mitra, Calcutta digital artist, March 2000

For the Record: lsts in the life of Dr. Rodney Chang, July 14, 2001

Cyberpunk Project-Cyberpunk in Arts-Cyberpunk has also inspired many artists. The Cyberpunk art is considered free minded and there was no place for scruples, when talking about cyberpunks behind the computer or the drawing board. The erotic mixture of technology and art tickled the deep-inside-cyberpunk artists to creativity.
