Georgios Cherouvim (b. 1981, Athens, Greece) is a Brooklyn-based artist working with computer animation and code. He experiments with algorithms, new technologies and installation in pursuit of new aesthetics and visual languages. He often programs custom tools and instruments, which he uses to produce his work, and enjoys shifting between the roles of the developer and the artist.

Georgios’ work has been featured in festivals and venues worldwide, including Siggraph, Ars Electronica, South by Southwest, the International Symposium on Electronic Art, Art Futura, Athens International Film Festival, and the Greek National Opera. Georgios is a member of Onassis ONX and was an artist-in-residence at the Watermill Center in February 2024.

He graduated with honors and an award from the National Center for Computer Animation in the United Kingdom. Since 2005, he has worked as a creative and technical director in visual effects for feature films, TV, and Virtual Reality. Georgios teaches an animation class at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He is a mentor at NEW INC of the New Museum, and has served as a jury member for the ÉCU film festival and the Irish Film & Television Academy.
