Paolo Piscitelli Part-Time Instructor

Paolo Piscitelli graduated from the Academy of Fine Art in Torino, Italy. He works in drawing, sculpture and installation and oftentimes starts in response to specific sites.  His compositions are often in a perpetual metamorphic stage. Like in the most recent works centered on permutations, ephemeral construction and visual anagrams, his praxis reveals unexpected possibilities more or less like the act of dreaming that combines, often using randomness, fragments of an experienced reality in order to create new narratives. He has exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions most recently at Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Italy; Singuhr-hoergalerie, Berlin, Germany; Lawndale Art Center, Houston; Museum of Art in Denver, CO.  Awarded the Premio Maretti at the GAM of Bologna, Italy (2003). Recent fellowships/residencies include, Vermont Studio Center, SVA Summer Residency, NYC, Fellowship for Visual Art, Künsterhaus Schloß Balmoral, Bad Ems, Germany.
