_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________BIO

 

Gianfranco Basso was born in Lecce (Italy) in 1978.

He attended the ‘’Academy of Fine Arts “ in Rome, graduating in Painting in 2009. Over the years he also began to develop his passion for photography and sculpture. From there, his research continues to explore the relationship between space and individual; the “individuals”, in the work of the artist, seem to get lost in an infinite void, in a “place”, a space in which everyone need to live, think and exist. We perceive the importance of this empty “universe” that surrounds the subject as something pulsing, an entity from which radiates ideas, feelings and inventions.

In 2012 he received the critics award at “I Biennale Internazionale - Città di Lecce”, while in 2016, in Salento, he won the “Painting Prize” entitled to the great landscapist Giuseppe Casciaro, in 2018 he is the winner of the Apulia Land Art Festival. He was among the finalists at the “Cairo Editorial Prize”, “Celeste Prize 2015” and the “Donkey Prize III”. He has been also invited to participate at the “2017 Beijing Contemporary Art Festival-Meeting in 798”.

He lives and works in Rome.
