Baris Aladag is defining a new generation of European artists. Emerging from a Turkish-descended family in Germany, his work travels culturally as much as it explores new visual languages and formats. Baris’ dive into the art-sea started early. Thirteen years old – and already DJing in an underground club in Munich. One year later he was in a studio recording his first song. A few years later Baris started experimenting with moving picture. Graduating from college and he shot his first short film.
Now Baris focuses on commercials and music videos and explores new grounds for fictional work. He just recently shot BMW, Audi, VW, Beck´s, Alanis Morissette, Phoenix and Asteroid Galaxy Tour. And Baris just won his first Silver Lion at the Cannes Advertising Festival. He also is about to produce another music album and sets up a Cinema documentary to be released in 2015. Looking at his solid work and constant creative flow, we can only wonder: what will Baris do next?
