Nicholas Kozis Artist Statement
My interest in digital art as an undergraduate Fine Arts major at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Upon graduation, I was accepted to the graduate program in Experimental Animation at the California Institute of the Arts. It was there that I met animation pioneer, Professor Jules Engel. I was encouraged to look outside commercial animation and explore other forms of art. Under his wing, I was exposed to the many experiential animators who have greatly impacted the creation of my independent films. The principle of arts exploration has been a driving force behind all my artistic endeavors.
