Giuseppe Stampone was born in Cluses, France in 1974. He is an Italian artist who lives and works between Rome and New York. He is the founder of Solstizio Project (www.solstizio.org) that collaorates with the European Union and has been developed in different countries around the world. Stampone collaborates with various universities such as: Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino (where he teaches "Tecniche e Tecnologie delle Arti Visive"), IULM of Milan, Federico II University of Naples, and McLuhan Program in Culture and Technology of Toronto. He won the 3° Maretti Prize (Centro per l'arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci, Prato) and the first edition of Pacco d'Artista Prize promoted by Poste Italiane.
Stampone's artistic quest represents the synthesis and formalisation of the concept encapsulated by the term Global Education. His artistic output ranges from interactive multimedia installations to monumental and participatory public art projects. Simultaneously, his work makes reference to the "reasons for doing" by dwelling on the aesthetic gratification that comes from drawing with a Bic pen.
Stampone's work is a "formal experience". If the form is closed and crystallised, experience of the form creates a discussion on the artist's part within a community from which he requires interaction and participation.
The various mediums adopted serve to intensify the urgency of the circumstances. For Stampone, the artist must return to placing ethical commitment before aesthetics, political activism in the everyday, and an urgent need to construct connective structures and platforms that are cognitive, tactile and transfiguring.
His approach is nuanced and methodical, inviting the public to reflect on fundamental issues like immigration, access to water resources or war.
