Julius Guest

Born 1919 in Vienna, Austria.

Julius Guest’s work was informed thematically by the rich ornament of mediaeval church windows, which he examined through computer graphics. He produced his first computer graphics as early as 1962. The key characteristic of his works is a seventeen-part circular ornament based on mathematical curves.

1947 Finished his studies in Australia, where he had emigrated after finishing school and worked as a Senior Tutor at Melbourne University.
1949-60 Worked as a research mathematician at the Aeronautical Research Laboratories in Melbourne, following which he was employed as a lecturer in pure and applied mathematics at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
1962 Produced his first computer graphics stimulated by the institute’s equipment with its fast computers and drawing apparatus.
