Artist Profile

Filippo Sciascia Italy (b. 1972, Italy) is an Italian artist based in Bali, Indonesia. Working between figuration and abstraction, Sciascia captures the transitional process from one medium to another in an amalgamation of pixels, lines and forms. The emphasis on the process in his work rather than on the object demands a profound understanding of the character and history of each media. Sciascia demonstrates this knowledge through his consistent and loyal struggle with the challenges of representation and reality.

Beyond his artistic practice, Sciascia has played a significant role in shaping the Balinese art scene by founding a gallery (active 1998 - 2008), where platform for local Balinese artists and facilitated collaborations with prominent figures in the contemporary art scene translating exhibitions to the Indonesian pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Sciascia continues to thrive in Bali, living and working within the artistic community.
