Werdegang / Ausbildung: 
Born in 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 conceiving a multi-dimensional image of his own world, his own fairy-tale.

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.
