Giorgiko is a husband-and-wife creative team composed of Los Angeles-based artists Darren and Trisha Inouye. Born out of a collaborative experiment between the two artists in 2012, the mystical Giorgiko universe is home to lost boys and wayfaring girls, and explores the stories of their wanderings and their dreams of being found again. Giorgiko’s work melds Trisha’s minimal, expressive character creation with Darren’s classical painting into narrative and figurative illustrations and paintings of endearing characters within urban and natural environments. The influences of urban culture, fantasy, and classical art are evident in their body of work.
Trisha hails from a Korean immigrant family in the San Francisco Bay area and brings a cuteness and sweet innocence to Giorgiko’s characters. Meanwhile, Darren is a 4th generation Japanese-American from Los Angeles who fell in love with hip hop dancing and graffiti in his youth, and the underground influence is evident throughout the Giorgiko universe. Darren and Trisha graduated with BFA degrees from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California, USA in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
