GRAAM



Konstantinos Gkarametsis [born 1978] aka GRAAM is a multidisciplinary visual artist, designer and educator. He graduated from University Of National And World Economy [UNWE], Applied Informatics [BA & MA] and holds an MFA in "Digital Arts" from Athens School of Fine Arts [ASFA].
He is the founder of the design studio GRAAMAARG.

In his artistic practice, he deals with different mediums [moving image, performance, sound, photography,...] and his projects usually take the form of video-installations . The process of transforming existing places into a new world of aesthetic experience is a fundamental element of his work, which negotiates the human condition related with notions such as absurdity, grotesque, boundaries and the notion of repetition. His artistic practice is highly based on improvisation, experimentation and aleatoric processes.
