Georgy Korablev is a Canadian visual artist, born 1986 in St.Petersburg, Russia, and currently residing in Vancouver, Canada. Georgy is recognized for the development of the _gPop_ visual aesthetic. Through avant-garde gPop the photographic medium received extension and another level of abstraction with liberal use of colour, addition of forms and elements of painting to photographic image, novelty in subject choice, the use of photographic instruments to render the invisible visible. The result is visual poetry, striking yet ever so elusive to our eyes conditioned to read reality.
A student of everybody from Marshall McLuhan to Michel de Montaigne to Socrates and Diotima of Mantinea to Lil Wayne and back, Georgy Korablev is concerned with the message of the medium and continues to explore visual dimensions at their intersections with printed word and recorded sound, condensing the content carrying capacity and specifying the effect of the media on the audience. VISUAL DIMENSIONS, a May 2016 Vancouver show, dubbed as the “Greatest Hits Show”, which happened at the Beaumont Studios with support of Capture Photography Festival, showcased some of the archetypal samples of the gPop works in combination with recorded sound, experimenting with deep visual sound-assisted meditation and its effects on human thought process.
