Giuseppe Mastromatteo (1970) has been working as an artist for fifteen years. Following important work experiences in the music industry as a sound engineer and musician, he approached the world of art choosing photography as his expressive medium; he continued his studies, graduating from the Accademia di Comunicazione di Milan with a degree in Art Direction.
Since 2005, his works have been at the centre of critical attention, subject to in-depth articles in art catalogues and trade journals. His works have been exhibited in art galleries, museums and trade fairs in numerous locations, including Milan, Paris, London, Miami, Beijing, Basel, Istanbul and New York, where he lived for three years. In 2006 he was appointed Art Director of the Milan Triennale, for the launch of the Bovisa Triennale and other contemporary art exhibitions.
His current post is Chief Creative Officer for the Ogilvy Italia communications agency, while also dedicating time to his own artistic practise between Milan and New York. He also writes about art and teaches at prestigious institutions of higher learning within the field. HUMANSCAPE is Mastromatteo’s first artist monograph.
