CHRISTO GUELOV (Spain), Grand Prize Winner
Place de la Paix (Peace Park)

Winner of the Grand Prize in the NFB’s McLaren Wall-to-Wall competition, this experimental video extends the approach of McLaren’s Synchromy (1971) by exploring the synchronicity between sounds and images, with geometric shapes engaging in a multicoloured dance guided by digital noises. Artist Christo Guelov thus offers an original perspective on the evolution of artistic media and of our relationship with technology.


Born in Bulgaria, Christo Guelov studied mural and fresco painting at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia, then continued his studies in graphic arts in Madrid, where he lives and works today. For over 20 years, he has been exploring audiovisual creation, multimedia design, interactivity, and the opportunities for expression offered by new media.
