Today we’d like to introduce you to Loris Ravera.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
It all started after seeing Toy Story 1 for the first time while growing up in France. I was immediately blown away by the possibilities of 3D animation and knew it was something I wanted to be involved with. Fast-forward a few years and countries later (France, Denmark, then Brooklyn, NY). I had the opportunity to pursue a 4-year art degree in digital arts at Pratt Institute. I soaked up as much art as possible from my classes, fellow students, and the city’s surroundings. After ten years in New York though, I decided it was time to move to Los Angeles for my next career move. It’s been two years since the move now, and I am continuing my career as a Motion Designer and Art Director and enjoying the quality of life so much more. I can’t wait to see what opportunities there are here!
Please tell us about your art.
I am a Motion Graphics Designer, 3D Generalist and Art Director by trade but also like to refer it as a Multimedia Artist. I love creating art in many forms, whether it’s through photo, video, audio, or installation art. It’s not always evident to use all these skills in one workplace, so my main trade is to create motion graphics for various creative outlets and incorporate my extra skill set whenever possible. Whether it’s creating a graphics package for a new show that will stream on YouTube, designing a 30 ft. backdrop for a live show, or creating a promotional video for Google Drive, I approach every single project the same way: bring a jack-of-all-trades attitude and a problem-solving spirit. I believe artists shouldn’t be limited to a singular type of work. I’m extremely passionate about many areas of design and love to collaborate with like-minded artists.
Given everything that is going on in the world today, do you think the role of artists has changed? How do local, national, or international events and issues affect your art?
We are problem solvers and can elevate any ideas into something more meaningful.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
I post all my work on my website lorisravera.com, my Vimeo page vimeo.com/lravera, as well as my IG Instagram.com/slowloris89/ where I post photography. Don’t hesitate to reach out via any of these platforms. I love to help and collaborate!
