The Autodesk Flame community honored The Artery VFX ECD and Flame artist Vico Sharabani with its inaugural Flame Award at IBC. The award serves as a broad recognition of Sharabani’s creative and technical contributions to the visual effects industry over the past 23 years.

“Getting such recognition from this unique community of artists is very humbling.” Sharabani said. “Flame has been central to my work and business since 1995, so I could have done very little of what I have without its amazing tools.”

Sharabani has built The Artery primarily on his Flame skills, building a portfolio that includes work with global brands like Nike and Mercedes, as well as with high profile artists such as Beyoncé, Coldplay and Nicki Minaj.

His groundbreaking SIGGRAPH technical paper and presentation in 2003 introduced an innovative 3D rig that was considered a major advance in computer graphics. “I have always been deeply engaged in a public conversation with other artists, and like to share my ideas openly,” he said.

“In an industry bursting with talent, there is a handful of standouts that combine creative, technical, community and business skills at a high level, and Vico’s name is on that very short list,” The Artery EP and partner Yfat Neev noted. “We have worked together for nearly two decades. Vico’s success and consistent innovation inspires me and our team on a daily basis.”
