About Giuseppe Lo Schiavo

Born in Italy in 1986, Lo Schiavo currently lives and works in London.
He studied Architecture at La Sapienza University in Rome with a specialization in visual design. The artistic research of Lo Schiavo finds form, as a starting point, in photography and then contaminates other media such as installations and videos.
His passion in the field of evolutionism and biology is fundamental in his most recent artistic production where he analyzes the inseparable bond between man and nature. Lo Schiavo’s photography moves away from the documentary vision of reality to arrive at a careful staging of his personal vision.
Lo Schiavo uses high-resolution digital photographic cameras, photorealistic 3D visualization, and slow-motion video technology to extend the biological capabilities of the human vision giving us new perspectives and possibilities. This creative journey is filled with classical aesthetic references intended as the archaeological and anthropological traces of human which are then presented with a strong contemporary vision. Past-future, reality-fiction, natural-artificial are some of the elements that distinguish a large part of Lo Schiavo’s works.
Lo Schiavo’s works have been exhibited in numerous international exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world, including: Saatchi Gallery in London, Aperture Foundation in New York, Mixer Gallery in Istanbul, Museo Marca di Catanzaro, LACDA in Los Angeles, Abay Opera House in Kazakhstan and other personal and collective exhibitions in Luxembourg, London, Tokyo.
Some of his works have been published on BBC, Inside Art, Exibart, O Estado de S. Paulo Newspaper, La Stampa, Wall Street International, Vice, The Advocate, Art Tribune, Fahrenheit magazine, Fubiz, Istanbul Art News, De Standaard, TG1 , Radio Télévision Suisse 3.
Some of the most important awards Lo Schiavo has won are the following: Life Framer, 2 Gold Medals at the Tokyo Photography TIFA 2016 Awards, European Photography Award 2013, selected for Exposure award 2013, Young at Art 2012, Google + Saatchi GIF 2014, Portrait Salon 2013.
