projectsabout

Vladimir Storm is a visual artist and a creative director focused on immersive media and real-time computer graphics. He collaborates with volumetric filmmakers and game studios, universities and science labs, museums and creative agencies to design unique interactive storytelling, immersive installations and spatial visual effects. He is a frequent public speaker at various art and tech conferences and runs the Creative XR community in Berlin.

In his personal works Vladimir iterates between concepts of virtual and physical, metaphorically connecting the latest technologies and the art world. His visual style balances cinematic photorealism and post-instagram anti-aesthetics, creating a mixture of occultic graphic design, 3D brutalism and artificial organic life simulations.

Vladimir also researches worldwide spiritual diversity in the digital age by hosting workshops and projects in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, collaborating with local artists and preserving indigenous spiritual practices into immersive media. He interconnects people and shares cultural ideas between the developing countries and post-christian societies of Europe and the US.
