The colorful glitch art of Manuel Fernandez, an artist hailing from Spain, may look like a visualization of a lava lamp or some other relic of the '70s. Bright and bold, the rainbow renditions are actually the result of different mediums including painting, animated gifs, photography, video and print. The contemporary glitch art brings space of hues to living spaces and galleries in a way that will encourage a variety of interpretations.

In addition to the obvious retro vibe, the glitch art is also reminiscent of heat signatures. Although many of the colors are repeated throughout, each glitch art piece has their own personality. By using different technology to create the UV paintings, the pieces come full circle in a way that brings technology to viewers' minds as well.
