Victor Koroma is an artist that creates mixed media photography works.
His process is similar to computer hacking. He alters and modifies the software and hardware of conventional photography in order to reprogram the medium with new directives.
His mission is to find new ways to construct and reconstruct what a photograph is.
A mixed media synthesis of different processes that blurs boundaries. Utilizing elements of paintings, illustrations, and sculpture. A means to the end of making an image rather than taking a traditional photograph. His work is experimentation aiming to morph and propel the medium to a point where you question what is even considered a photograph anymore.
Observing. Playing. Reacting. Studying different types of objects and materials in order to get them to function in creative ways. Whimsical alchemy. Bright and shiny. Attractive aluminum and acrylic glass surfaces that transcends.
A first place fine art winner in PDN’s 2017 Objects of Desire contest. A 2016 Print Magazine “New Visual Artists” ( 15 under 30 ) award winner.
He currently lives and works out of Los Angeles. In his spare time, he writes and produces music with his synthesizer and laptop.
He was born in Freetown Sierra Leone but, grew up in Alexandria Virginia.
