Born in 1982 in northwestern Greece, Aris Chantzopoulos, "Forvitinn", is using a wide range of channels of communication and expression to create emotions. By means of painting, music composing, sculpture, as well as video art,media art performance and photography, he is trying to conceive a multi-dimensional image of his own world, his own fairytale.
Two elements mostly dominate his work, a romantic spirit, expressed persistenly through his artistic research of virgin forests and aquatic landscapes of elf-like creatures, and the dynamism of a wild inhospitably realistic, but pure and minimalistic plasticity. An urban and technological human-made environment. Combining these two worlds together,made him create a very personal stroke, both visually and musically.Video art came as a way to combine music and image. Music within this process of visual composition is always present, and is both a source of inspiration and a means of creative expression.
Having already an album in his hands, by the title "shhhh...." he opened a new chapter presenting his art in many spaces both in Athens and Berlin, as well as other cities of Europe.
