GIANMARIO MASALA

The creator of several among our images of the front covers.

Gianmario and Urania started working together at the end of 2018, after having met during a Symposium of contemporary art.

Professionally, Gianmario works as an architect mostly in interiors and consultant in graphic and design training too. He creates artistic images in photography through a personal use of post-production in editing, applied to his photos and digital compositions.
The variety of textures layers in background (cracked canvas, scraped walls, rust metallic inserts and others materials) together with the use of colors and focus on some parts of the image, give the sensation of landscapes’ and portraits’ paintings of past centuries. The breaking elements highlighted by the fractured textures bring a sense of uneasiness, it puts “beauty” up for discussion to reach a more deep sense of “truth” and  “feel”.
In 2007 he started to post his works over the Internet (500px, Art Limited, Behance, and some other photo platforms) and to expose in some solo and collective exhibitions.
