Eddie Chu is a double Emmy Award-winning multidisciplinary artist who blends traditional art practice and digital means to explore tensions between lived and virtual spaces. Chu views digital media today as underwritten by increasingly concealed layers of digital creation, which unwittingly contributes to a contemporary culture filled with tensions between truths and fakes. His work reveals such layers as speculative fantasies to focus a lens on the resulting paradoxes and their consequences.
He received a BFA Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and MFA Art from Hunter College, NYC. Chu is also an award-winning designer and technologist heralding from leading companies like R/GA, Imaginary Forces, and HBO. His clients range from Apple, Nike, Google, to Facebook. He has exhibited his work widely, including New York, San Francisco, Washington DC, Germany, Austria, and Los Angeles.
Currently he lives and works in Brooklyn, NY; and, serves as Creative Lead at HBO for TV shows “Westworld” and “Euphoria,” while experimenting in creative technology in the realms of AR, VR, and CGI motion graphics.
