Andrew Conru Founder, RobotArt

The RobotArt Competition was started by Andrew Conru as a way to merge two of his passions – technology and art – and to encourage the advancement of both together.  Fundamental to the competition is the belief that creativity and expression are emerging in unexpected ways from our relationship with technology.  This contest hopes to explore and advance its development over the next five years.

Andrew holds a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering design from Stanford University.   He’s taught control systems at Santa Clara University and Robotics at San Jose State University.  He is also an amateur artist who started painting in 2015 as a new year resolution.  His blog is at
