GALO (Andrea Galvagno), Savigliano, Italy, 1972
Galo graduated as a graphic designer before turning his back on just about everything except love and paint and layer after layer and went deeper into what can all be called the Galoverse. With Galo, life is art and he spends his life sharing his art, wherever, whenever and with whomever he can.
During Galo’s 10 years in Amsterdam, he became one of the European forerunners of street art and has collaborated and exhibited with artists of global importance, such as Shepard Fairey, Mr Brainwash or D*Face among others. He has exhibited Europe, Japan and the United States. Galo moved back to Turin, Italy in 2007 where he currently lives and works.
Galo is strongly linked to the international post-graffiti scene, showing and helping urban artist to spread their work in his gallery in Turin.
His subjects are the result of an accurate artistic research on the chaotic but not casual passage of people, expressions and situations of the contemporary. His materials are the most diverse, from acrylic to spray from canvas to plastic.
