Gabriel Karagianis grew up in Illinois and began to seriously study art while attending Woodstock High School. He was awarded a scholarship to The American Academy of Art in Chicago and after graduating in 2003 with a degree in multimedia/web design, he shifted his focus back to drawing and non-digital media. He has been painting with oil paint since 2007 and it is his medium of choice.
“My work is composed of recurring dreams, universal religious themes, and contemporary crisis. What interests me is the ancient mind, and how the dreams of the ancient mind reverberate and take shape in the contemporary world. The subjects of my work are set in a posthistoric world and they are depicting timeless conflicts of the heart and soul. Like the ongoing transformation of the ancient mind, so is the ongoing tranformation of my own objectives. “
