Giacomo De Vito was born in 1976 in Milan.
In 2006 he graduated in illustration from the IED, the European Institute of Design. Shortly thereafter, his works began to reveal an interest in Cubism and Expressionism, remaining characterized by a spontaneity that preserves the brutality of inspiration. In 2010 his first personal exhibition was held, entitled "Masks and Transfigurations", curated by Françoise Calcagno, while in 2012 he participated in "The State of Art", Italian Pavilion, Venice Biennale, curated by Vittorio Sgarbi with the presentation by Jean Blanchaert. The techniques he uses are acrylic and oil pastel, used both on paper and on canvas. De Vito's language favors bright, harsh, anti-naturalistic colors, simplified volumes with heavy contours, the result of an aggressive, irregular, deformed sign. Disharmonies and alterations affirm a primitive, rough, perturbed aesthetic, aimed at expressing one's interiority without sweetening or idealization. 2018 is the exhibition "Burning down the house" at the Gliacrobati Gallery in Turin, curated by Francesco Sena. In the series of more recent works, the artist also employs the technique of collage, superimposing fabrics of various kinds on the painting. Giacomo De Vito lives and works in Turin.
