ARTIST | Strati Hovartos
Having grown up in Los Angeles, Strati Hovartos was surrounded by art and varied cultures from a young age. He studied photography at UCLA and discovered his true passion. His first real experience with travel came when he was stationed overseas after joining the US Navy as a rescue swimmer. Traveling all through Asia and the South Pacific in his early twenties began his lifelong obsession with photography on location. Working for the last 15 years as a rock photographer, Hovartos traveled the world with many successful bands documenting events. This has afforded him the opportunity to photograph in locations such as Russia and Africa. The latter of which has become a new obsession and direction for his next series. Photography has become the most significant influence on his life and his art, and he credits it as the only way he’s ever known to express his love for the world.
There have been several times in my life where I was visually awe struck. The first time I came out of the tunnel and witnessed the Yosemite Valley is probably at the top of my list. I think some people feel like that when they first see Time Square in New York City or the first time you see the coliseum in Rome. For me it’s always nature.
