John Aslanidis Biography

Since the 1990s, Melbourne based John Aslanidis has been exploring the relationship between sound and vision. In each painting, Aslanidis uses colour and line to create chromatic intensities that resemble the experience of listening to music. Heavily influenced by the field of electronic music and its sub-genres including dub, minimal techno and hip hop, Aslandis was a member of Clan Analogue (a collective of electronic sound and visual artists) during the 1990s.
