Aristotle Roufanis (b. 1983 Athens, Greece) is a London-based visual artist whose work focuses on patterns, textures and human interactions defined by the condition of urban life and architecture. Fascinated by how humans build the environments they live in, he has travelled the world extensively to create images that combine meticulous digital editing with a personal artistic vision. His work has been exhibited internationally at museums, galleries and art fairs. He is currently enrolled in the MA Fine Art Digital course at Camberwell College, University of the Arts London.
Alone Together is an ongoing photographic project that deals with urban isolation and loneliness, as well as our human need for togetherness. The series comprise large photos of images depicting vast urban nightscapes that are creatively edited so that only a few individual apartment lights are visible. Hardly recognisable in the dark, some of the world’s most famous metropoles such as London, Paris, Miami and Athens are transformed into sprawling canvases of anonymity, where countless people have decided to make their home but hardly connect to each other. For the artist, the individual lights shining in the city at night symbolise persons stranded in the dark void of a detached world.
