Yorgo Alexopoulos is a New York-based artist best known for combining a variety of media into immersive fine art installations and artworks. He creates his artworks by combining and synchronizing multiple monitors or projections, LED screens and electronics into custom-fabricated structures and architectural environments. Alexopoulos’s artworks often touch upon transcendental themes.
In 2001, Alexopoulos was the visual effects supervisor for the film The Kid Stays in the Picture, which chronicles the life of Hollywood legend Robert Evans of Paramount Pictures. On this project, he was instrumental in the development of the 2.5d effect that is now ubiquitous in video art, film and advertising.
Alexopoulos was raised in Venice Beach, CA, and was a member of the legendary Los Angeles graffiti crew WCA (West Coast Artists); he tagged as “Ash” during the mid to late 1980s and helped pioneer the graffiti movement in Southern California. He graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1995. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally. In New York, Alexopoulos is represented by Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery.
