Meet the Team Behind CINEMAGIC at BLINK

Posted on October 6, 2022 by Molly Berrens

 

It's BLINKtober! For the past several months, our team of eight has been dreaming up and designing CINEMAGIC: a whimsical journey through entertainment worlds influenced by our childhood, classics, and present day favorites.

LEARN MORE ABOUT CINEMAGIC

Lead by our Creative Director, Chris Hagan, the six Yetis, alongside our esteemed collaborators, Tony Agliata and Matthew Grote, hope you come see CINEMAGIC at BLINK, October 13-16, 2022! We'll be on location (outside First Financial Bank - 601 Madison Avenue, Covington, KY) Thursday, October 13th from 7:00pm-8:00pm as our projectors light up for the first time. Come say hi! If you can't meet us in person, please tag us on social media and hashtag your photos with #BLINKSpottedYeti. We'd love to hear your thoughts and we appreciate your support.

Matthew Grote (who also goes by the moniker OGRE) began his career working as a toy designer at Fisher Price in East Aurora, NY., where he started creating murals as a side practice. In 2014, Matthew moved home to Cincinnati and continued implementing murals and installations with ArtWorks and other organizations while maintaining a design career in 3D printing. He also worked as an environmental graphic designer at Kolar Design, producing art and murals for Cincinnati Children's Hospital, Fifth Third Bank, and Enerfab, Inc.
