Gerasimos Floratos (b. 1986) lives and works in New York City. Floratos grew up enmeshed within the overwhelming sensorial experience that is Times Square, the pounding commercial and touristic heart of the city, a place the artist refers to as “the center of the center”. To this day, his studio is stationed there, where he continues to work and live. Surrounded by the restlessness of midtown Manhattan, Floratos uses the hyper-charged atmosphere of his neighborhood as a springboard for deeper explorations of the urban matrix and the human subconscious.
Includes 'Maps', a press release by Anne Dressen, 'Hymn', a press release by Anne Dressen and 'Psychogeography', a press release by Nicolas Trembley.
