Sandro Kopp is a famous contemporary visual artist who predominantly has Skype as the central subject of his artwork. He combines the primitive technique of oil painting with a dominant modern technology—Skype—to deliver his visual masterpieces. Currently residing in Nairn in the Northern region of Scotland, his series are essentially motivated by his nomadic lifestyle as well as the distortions that occur because of bad internet connections. Kopp’s inspirations vary from masterful impressionist Vincent Van Gogh to contemporary painters and photographers like John Currin, David Hockey and Ryan McGinley. His paintings have been exhibited across the world and mainly involve his family, friends and partner Tilda Swinton in the portraits. Apart from painting, Kopp has played small roles in films like ‘Julia’, captured still photographs for various films and also contributed to other divisions of the film industry.
