Andrea Galvani was born in Verona in 1973. He lives and works in Milan and has distinguished himself in the last few years as an artist who pushes the boundaries of the photographic medium. He is fascinated by science and it’s models of representation. As well as in the multiplicity of languages, signs, and in their relationship in history; in tables and graphics as synthesis of philosophical, political, and economic concepts. Andrea has a predilection for the photographic medium but avails often to other mediums, most of all video, drawing and wall painting.
