I am Charli Siebert, a 30 year old digital artist from Southern California. I have over 10 years of experience working with Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator as well as the 3D modeling program Poser; all of which I am completely self-taught in.
I have 5 years of experience working as a digital photo restoration artist, as well as 8 years of experience working as a graphic designer. I have worked in designing various book covers and album covers over the years.
My work as a digital artist has been published in magazines such as 3D World Magazine, HDRI 3D Magazine, Heavy Metal Magazine and others. My work has also been published in books such as D'Artiste - Character Modeling 2, Expose' 5, Gothic Art Now and Vampire Art Now.
I have shown my work in many art galleries over the years such as Echo Gallery in Chicago, IL, NicheL.A. in Los Angeles, CA, The Los Angeles Center for Digital Art (or LACDA) in Los Angeles, CA and Copro Gallery (formerly Copro Nason) in Santa Monic, CA.
I was involved in a group exhibition (Digital World: Oz) at Niche.LA and Lounge441 on Gallery Row in Downtown Los Angeles, CA in August of 2005 which was reviewed by Art Forum’s Matthew Wilder who wrote “…"Digital World: Oz" features the gently dissolving images of the flabbergasting Charli Siebert…Siebert's independence from art-school cant is gratifying in itself, but her frosted, distressed, tactile-but-ethereal images are the real thing—Goth and sci-fi kitsch ossified into beaux-arts stateliness. Her porny, morbid figures hover in a state of being pitched somewhere between photorealism and PhotoShop artifice, as if a family of Joel-Peter Witkin ghouls had invented their own video game to live in…”
I am looking to do challenging and inspiring work that leans to the dark side but am fully capable and happy to do work in any/all genres. The creepy stuff is just more fun for me.
“For me, being an artist is like having Tourette Syndrome or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The need to create compelling imagery is like a tick… it is an obsession that must be fulfilled.” -Charli Siebert
