About Ari Fararooy

Ari Fararooy has made quite the name for himself on the internet through his trippy, insanely creative stop motion videos. Having first received a camera for his 20th birthday, Ari is totally self taught as an artist, initially starting by editing videos he took of his “buddies doing dumb stuff,” cut and edited in an interesting and unique ways. The artist describes his style as “juxtaposing reality with visual effects, so that the surrealism can really pop and feel out of place.” Now with 240K+ fans on TikTok, Ari’s stop motion, looping video art has attracted the eyes of brands and people all over the world.
