GIUSEPPE LO SCHIAVO
Italian visual artist, based between London and Milan
He studied architecture at La Sapienza University in Rome with a specialization in visual design.
Giuseppe Lo Schiavo is an award-winning visual artist based between London and Milan. His research is aiming to create a bridge between art and science. Using AI and machine learning, virtual reality, infrared systems, or microorganisms in the lab, the artist’s research often focuses on opposing elements: creation-destruction, past-future, analog-digital, real-virtual.
In 2021 Lo Schiavo has been announced as the winner of the European project BioArt Challenge organised by the Museum of Science MUSE in Italy. The artist will start research on art and synthetic biology with the support of Cardiff University, Zurich University of Applied Science, the University of Trento and the Museum of Science MUSE.
Giuseppe Lo Schiavo is currently an artist in residence at the Microbiology lab of UCL University in London.
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, Mana Contemporary in New Jersey, Museo Marca di Catanzaro, LACDA in Los Angeles, LA Show, Istanbul Contemporary, Abay Opera House in Kazakhstan and other solo and group exhibitions in Luxembourg, London, Tokyo, Rome, Munich, LA, Turin. His work has been published on BBC, Vice, Inside Art, Elle Decor, Exibart, O Estado de S. Paulo Newspaper, Repubblica, La Stampa, Wall Street International, Sky Arte, Usaartnews, Fortune, Artribune, Fahrenheit Magazine, The Advocate, Fubiz, Istanbul Art News, De Standaard, TG1, Esquire, Radio Télévision Suisse 3.
