Christian Lorenz Scheurer at Gnomon GalleryProcessions: The Art of Christian Lorenz ScheurerOpening Party: December 5, 2008
Christian Lorenz Scheurer has worked on some of the most innovative movies, games and theme parks of the past decade.
His range of projects reaches from architectural design for movies such as THE FIFTH ELEMENT to concept art for THE MATRIX and TITANIC to the fantastic dreamscapes of DARK CITY, FINAL FANTASY, ANIMATRIX and THE GOLDEN COMPASS. He was involved in the visual definition of video games such as EA's SPORE, Mistwalker's LOST ODYSSEY and Square's FINAL FANTASY IX. Venturing into other artistic projects, Scheurer has lent his unique vision to massive theme parks in Dubai, children's bestselling book covers and original intellectual properties for animated film. His career has lead him from New York to Tokyo to Cape Town and his work has been shown in presentations and expositions around the world.
In 2006 Scheurer released his first book ENTROPIA: A COLLECTION OF UNUSUALLY RARE STAMPS (Design Studio Press) which he has optioned off to a major Hollywood Studio -- he is designing and co-directing this ambitious project.
Along with his current work on Entropia, Scheurer also teaches at Art Center College of Design (Pasadena). During his free time, he continues to fill sketchbooks and has recently returned to traditional painting.
