Andrei Chino is an artist, designer and filmmaker working with the human perception of the world around basing on facial recognition in every single object and composition (Theory of Found Faces). He believes that all the emotions hidden in the objects around have a great impact on our lives. Keeping this in mind he creates objects of art and design aimed to release living energy, sexuality, and humorous view on things.
Andrei Chino is an artist working with the perception of human personality in the era of Internet and Social media. In his works, he raises the question of who a person really is outside the framework and concepts of society.
In his sculptures, the artist explores the discrepancy between the inner self of a person and his outer manifestation in society.
Digital works are more focused on the problems of mutual perception of each other by people through social networks, because these days this is how the first contact between people most often occurs.
