Born in 1971, Yorgo Alexopoulos is an American-born artist of Greek descent who combines a variety of media into immersive fine art installations and artworks. 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 best known for his moving image 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. 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.
