About me

Giuseppe Lo Schiavo by Mattia Gargioni

Giuseppe Lo Schiavo, also known as GLOS, is an Italian-born visual artist and researcher currently based between Milan and London. Lo Schiavo’s artistic journey is characterized by a dynamic blend of technology, science with echoes of ancient art and culture across various mediums.

After collaborating with the MUSE Museum of Science of Trento on a pioneering project about synthetic biology alongside the international research program ACDC, in 2022, Lo Schiavo introduced the concept of ‘synthetic photography’ – a revolutionary approach to image creation. This innovative technique involves computer-based methods as opposed to traditional camera-based processes.

Lo Schiavo engages with themes such as evolutionary biology, transhumanism, and ecocentrism.

Giuseppe Lo Schiavo’s contributions extend beyond the conventional, evidenced by being the first artist in residence at UCL’s Microbiology lab in 2020 and winning the 2021 European BioArt Challenge by the museum MUSE. Recognized as a prototype of the modern-day artist by Domus in 2023, Giuseppe Lo Schiavo aims to introduce a transformative and innovative approach to art, exploring synthetic realities and new emerging aesthetics.with echoes of ancient art and culture.”
