Cosimo Casoni Italian, b. 1990

Working at the intersect of high and low culture, Italian artist Cosimo Casoni seamlessly blends characteristics of hip-hop and post-vandal aesthetics with a sophisticated contemporary practice. 

 

His unique approach to mark making, and his employment of the skateboard as a medium, was largely influenced by the freedom, technique and creativity of free-stylers – an underground subculture in which Casoni has been immersed in since his youth. Casoni’s artistic process is activated by his acute attention to the details of his urban environment and a fascination with these unexplored visual geographies.

 

Casoni completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Arts and Painting at the Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA), Milan. Aspettando il Sole (Waiting for the Sun) , 2021, at PIERMARQ* marked Casoni's innagural solo exhibition in Australia. Prior to this Casoni has exhibited widely across Europe including Milan, Florence, Edinburgh, Leipzig and Berlin.
