Gio Schiano is an Italian contemporary designer, who is well-known for his high-fashion photography, as well as his paintings and sculptures. Schiano studied graphic design and photography, and has always retained a passion for creating fine art.
With a comprehensive artistic and technical skill set, Schiano is fully immersed in the art world in a multi-faceted fashion. Schiano’s work draws heavily on inspiration from the rich tradition of art and design that exists in Italian culture. Schiano’s sculptures are particularly inspired by Ettore Sottsass – the founder of the Memphis Group design movement that was active in the 1980’s. Known for colourful and vibrant design with a good dose of whimsy, the Memphis Group has become synonymous with innovation in design. The influence of the Memphis Group, as well as the Pop Art movement, is clear in Schiano’s pieces.
Vigorous colours, lines and shapes come together to create Schiano’s geometric sculptures, that confuse and delight the eye at the same time. Schiano’s fabulous work has gained international recognition with works exhibited in the USA, Japan, China, Australia and across Europe, including Italy and the UK.
