Giuseppe Lo Schiavo has studied Architecture at the University of La Sapienza of Rome and he is specialized in Architectural 3D Visualization. After working for 5 years in a famous design studio in Rome he decided in 2013 to become a full time fine art photographer after his photographic series Levitation received international acclaim and in the same year was exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery in London. In 2013 Lo Schiavo presented a new series, Ad Vivum, a collection of photographic portraits inspired by the flemish masters that won the Portrait Salon 2013 and was featured as a front cover on BBC online News. In 2014 he moved to London presenting a new series, Art Currency, for his new Solo Exhibition “Beyond Reality, Beyond Photography” exhibited in Turin and in Munich during the same year. In February 2015 he presented his latest work, Wind Sculptures, an experimental project where the artist for the first time takes part in some of his artworks, interacting and performing with the wind using a weather blanket, creating an empirical union of theatrical sculpture and the nature.

Lo Schiavo uses the camera as a creative and limitless tool able to reproduce and convey his imagination, he considers himself as an inventor rather than a discoverer.

The works of Giuseppe Lo Schiavo has been featured on BBC, Inside Art, Vice, Fubiz, O Estado de S. Paulo Newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung, La Stampa, Saatchi Gallery, Wall Street International, Rai TG1, Radio Télévision Suisse, Istanbul Art News. The works of Lo Schiavo has been exhibited in numerous art galleries and museums all over the world such as Saatchi Gallery in London, Aperture Foundation in New York Museum of Contemporary Art of Acri in Cosenza, Mixer Gallery in Istanbul and in other galleries in Rome, Turin and Munich and Miami. Lo Schiavo’s work has been presented also in various art fairs such as Contemporary Istanbul, SCOPE art Miami, Affordable Art Fair Milan and Paratissima.

I strongly believe that if you really want to know more "about me" the portfolio page is the most valuable and sincere source designed to describe who I am, or who I decided to be. With all the possible contradictions.

I am an animal, a human and an artist. In this exact order.
