Yorgo Alexopoulos is an American-born artist of Greek descent who combines a variety of media into immersive fine art installations and artworks. He is best known for his digitally animated works that fuse painting, drawing, photography, and cinematography into video installations and mixed-media sculptures. He often presents these works by combining and synchronizing multiple monitors or projections. Alexopoulos' artworks are concerned with the archetypal and often touch upon transcendental themes. Though he is frequently referred to as a digital artist, his practice is rooted in painting, the artist’s primary medium.
Permanent public installations include a 27-channel video installation for Norman Foster’s Bow Building in Calgary, Alberta, as well as large-scale video installations in Chicago’s AMA Plaza designed by Mies Van Der Rohe, and New York’s Row Hotel in Times Square. In 2011, he was commissioned by the Art Production Fund to produce a sprawling 432 LCD screen installation for the lobby of The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.
Alexopoulos’ work has been written about in Artforum, The New York Times, The Creators Project (VICE Magazine), Architectural Digest, Forbes and Fast Company Design.
Yorgo Alexopoulos is a member of the legendary Los Angeles graffiti crew WCA (West Coast Artists), when during his youth he tagged ASH, helping to pioneer the graffiti movement in Southern California during the 1980s.
A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he currently lives and works in both Los Angeles and New York City. He is represented by Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York City.
