Georgios Cherouvim is a multidisciplinary artist from Greece, currently based in NY. He entered the world of visual arts through computer animation and Visual Effects. Over the past 15 years he has worked on high profile film and commercial projects where he specializes in dynamic simulations, procedural animation and behavioral systems. In his own practice he is interested in the unintended use of these sophisticated tools in an attempt to explore new visual territories outside the realm of realism and embraces the nature of the medium.
Using code and other procedural environments, he often designs his own software tools which he uses to produce his work. He finds interest in the dialogue between the technical implementation and the creative application and how these two processes feed to each other, often leading to new ideas and ground for further exploration.
Experimentation is a big driving force and he constantly challenges himself with new mediums and techniques even outside the digital world. Over the years he has produce work in photography, sculpture and illustration.
His work and animation shorts have been screened in dozens of festivals around the world including Ars Electronica, Siggraph, Art Futura, One Dot Zero and numerous Internation Film Festivals. He has participated in several group art exhibitions and in 2014 he held the solo show ‘Monomorphia’ in Athens.
He graduated from the National Center for Computer animation of the United Kingdom with a first class degree. His professional career in Visual Effects started in 2005 at the Moving Pictures Company in London and he later relocated to Vancouver.
