Gero Gries was born in Marburg and initially completed his studies with a PhD in medicine. His career was lifted to a new level in the 1980s, when he started to work as a stage designer and director at the theater. Since 1989, Gries is also active in visual arts. In 1991/1992 he became a visiting lecturer at the ArtCenter in Pasadena, USA. At that time he first discovered his interest in Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) which has been his main field of interest ever since. Gero Gries lives and works in Berlin.
Gero Gries is one of those artists who consider computer-supported image production a continuation of painting via a new technical approach
Gero Gries has dedicated himself completely to the artistic creation of pictures on the computer. His large-format compositions are precisely executed and reveal classical motifs such as interiors or portraits. His pictures first suggest photorealism, but effectively exceed conventional tools of photography, so that his works are in fact more closely related to paintings.
