REO is a visual artist, music producer, and futurist whose work facilitates a conversation around the way the world views digital art as a whole. His perspectives in art, design, fashion, music, and technology overlap when it comes to his approach.
REO also experiences synesthesia; a rare ability that allows him to see color when he hears music. This gives him the capability to create art that shows what a song looks like. He has created graphic designs, animations, videos and projections for a wide range of brands and artists including Dior, Adidas, Nike, Kanye, Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Veuve Clicquot, elevating their overall presence and making their vision apparent in his work. He has also made a name for himself in the music industry, producing for acts such as Beyoncé, Lil Wayne, Bruno Mars and Chris Brown.
Do we interpret our world through a myopic lens of fixed memory, or are we willing to unlock the doors of perception and consider a place with an open mind, as if experiencing it for the first time? Jesse Woolston meditates on the interconnectivity between the natural world and the tonalities inherent in colors recognized on the visible light spectrum. By designing a meticulous soundtrack that combines classical string orchestration with electronic sequences, the artist asks us to consider our interpretation of places through an entirely new sensory experience.
