Biography: Vincenzo Grosso (Nuoro 1977) lives and works in Nuoro and Berlin. Due to his interest in street art, he began his experience on the walls of his city. He graduated in jewelery at the Art Institute of Nuoro. In the same year, he left for Florence where he graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts. From 2004, he attended the S.I.S.S. Tuscany, where he obtained the qualification for teaching Pictorial Disciplines. From 2005 to 2009, he taught at the Art Institute of Nuoro and collaborated for the realization of events and artistic interventions in his region and in some Italian cities.

In 2010, he left for Berlin, where he worked for two years with Xlab Gallery, focusing his attention on post-architectures and the possible consequences of the excesses of the modern world. He was invited to the 54th Venice Biennale in the Pavilion of his region. In addition to participating to awards, art festivals and exhibitions, he works with five artists at the Nuoro SEUNA LAB project, which has become a place for sharing experiences.

In 2011, he spent three months in London in the MAN-GASWORKS residency program. In 2012, he was invited to Casa Falconieri where he followed the research workshop “Signs of the urban landscape”. The experimentation of graphics and printing continues at BBK Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, where he still works. In 2013, he actively worked on a new show-room Studio in the German capital. He was selected among the artists of A.P.T. Global Collection. His works are part of public and private collections.
