The computer has allowed artist to erase the boundaries between photography, illustration and design so we can see new possibilities in all three disciplines.  I have spent the last fifteen years trying to push the possibilities of CGI as an art form as well as a platform to solve problems for my clients when photography or traditional illustration weren’t enough. Sometimes that’s because it’s too expensive, sometimes because the project needs to defy the laws of physics. And sometimes the product is simply not available yet, or I am contracted to design the product ad or logo to begin with.


Alex Ostroy is an Art Director  who specializes in high-impact graphic design and 3D visualization. Based in NYC, Ostroy received a BFA  from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from NYU.
