Fabio Giampietro was born in 1974 in Milan, where he lives and works. Through his characteristic unique technique - he paints by subtracting oil color from the canvas - he expresses strong and intense figurative painting.
Considered to be one of the forerunners of immersive art, Fabio Giampietro with his VR installations has transcended the "tangible world" connecting it definitively to the "metaverse." A visionary who never ceases to amaze. After several exhibitions in Milan, including a solo show at Palazzo Reale, in Bologna, Venice, Shanghai, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berlin and Toronto.
Fabio Giampietro has carved out a prominent role for himself in the Italian and international art scene
In Fabio Giampietro's work the barriers of art collapse and the propensity for continuity and simultaneity between the three spatial dimensions and time becomes tangible, though still imponderable in the eyes of the viewer. His work marks the liberation of pictorial forms from the classical frame, enhancing a process already established in the course of Italian Modern and Contemporary Art. It began with the revolutionary theories of Futurism in the early 20th century and continued with the speed of Lucio Fontana's gesture of cutting the canvas to explore the space behind and beyond.
Giampietro's investigations merge the tradition of painting with the most innovative technologies by combining the planes of space and time and nullifying the contemplative distance between the viewer's senses and the reality of the work of art. The virtual dilation of the painting invites the viewer to experience its reality within its newly exploded boundaries, appealing to all possible resources of psycho-sensory experience. Its main achievement lies in demonstrating that the painted work on canvas no longer has a central core, even though it exists and is in front of us. Rather, it presents a dissemination of vantage points related to the viewer's physical movements within the virtual coordinates of space arranged for us by the artist's creative mind. Therefore, each step within Giampietro's work also guides our journey within the nightmares and dreams of the artist's mind, more vivid and present than ever.
