biography

Born in 1978, Giorgio Conta grew up in an artistic environment. He came into contact with various personalities from the art and culture world, including the great pianist Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, close friend of his family. After having received the high-school diploma, he attended a sculpture school devoting himself to painting and drawing.

Giorgio alternates his work as a sculptor with that of a painter.

He had the opportunity to learn more about the theme of the Sacred when he first joined and then started his cooperation with the Master Program on liturgical adaptation and design for buildings of worship, held in Trento in 2006, .

Giorgio often works at the construction of monumental works and has joined various solo as well as group exhibitions.

He displayed his artwork in two exhibitions curated by Vittorio Sgarbi: "Tesori di Italia" at Expo 2015 and "Da Giotto a De Chirico" at the Museum MuSa in Salò. In 2016 he was chosen by Liquid Art System Gallery to join Context Art Miami and Contemporary Istanbul.
