Discover Up and Coming Artist Yorgo Alexopoulos
Yorgo Alexopoulos is a New York-based artist best known for his innovative use of new media and technology in the Contemporary art and film industries. He is a graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he studied painting, film, and photography. His first solo exhibition was in 2001 at the Bronwyn Keenan Gallery in New York City. His artistic approach is visibly informed by techniques fine-tuned early in his career as a visual effects artist and animator in the New York City motion graphics industry. During this period he worked on several highly acclaimed films as a visual effects supervisor including The Kid Stays in the Picture, The Trials of Darryl Hunt, and The Devil Came on Horseback. All three films were official selections at the Sundance Film Festival. His computer-animated videos and digital artworks explore transcendental sensibilities and often blend Western and Eastern philosophical themes. Yorgo's work proposes and constantly reinvents a visual vocabulary influenced by astronomical images, religious iconography, scientific diagrams, and mythological symbolism.
