Nicholas Kozis Biography:
My interest in art and animation began during my final year as an undergraduate Fine Arts major at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. There I was influenced by the paintings of Wassily Kandinsky. His compositions and theory provided the inspiration to incorporate movement and color in my paintings. Upon graduation, I was accepted to the graduate program in Experimental Animation at the California Institute of the Arts. It was there that I met animation pioneer, Professor Jules Engel. Under his mentorship, I was encouraged to look outside commercial animation and explore other forms of art (dance, fine art, sculpture), which I then incorporated into filmmaking. Under his wing, I was exposed to the many experiential animators and artists who have greatly impacted the creation of my independent films. The principle of arts exploration has been a driving force behind all my artistic endeavors, and is something I attempt pass on to all my students.
