About the author:
George was born in the next year of the first world cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin went to space. He had been named after him Yuri Gribanovski. He graduated from the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) pedagogical university in 1985 with a BA (Honours) Degree in Fine Arts and Applied Design education. From the very onset of his professional career it had become very obvious that the traditionally accepted and politically bound routes of the Soviet Union art styles adopted by many of his peers would never be the path to follow. Instead, he chose to explore a more complicated and demanding adventure of innovative neo surrealistic painting.
As a result, his endeavors within this relatively short fine-art painting and applied arts career period (1985-1995) have brought considerable success with his neo-surrealist shows in several European capitals such as London, Stockholm, St-Petersburg, and Helsinki.
George makes a life-altering decision to transform his artistic career dramatically when he settles in Toronto, Canada and studies the latest computer digital art techniques. He becomes a professional Multimedia Graphic Designer and joins the IBM Corporation as a lead new media specialist. His prime interest now is in contemporary 3D modeling software and their applications. A phase of a complete freedom of self-expression comes to play: the possibility of utilizing and combining his previous fine-art experience and classical painting education with the new digital projects becomes both realistic and fulfilling. His latest digital neo-surrealistic artworks employ a vast array of extraordinarily photo-realistic visual records of his conceptual thoughts, philosophic views, fantasies, and dreams.
