MARCO DI SANTE
Marco Di Sante was born in Sora (Italy). He moved to Ireland’s capital in 2010 and has been living in Kilkenny since 2013. He recently graduated with a BA (Hons) in Visual Art from SETU Waterford and his final work was long-listed for RDS Visual Art Awards 2022 and selected for GOMA Graduate Award Exhibition 2022.
He is currently attending his second academic year of Master in Fine Art at National College of Art & Design in Dublin. His work is multi-disciplinary and explores the contemporary relationship between nature and humans. The research is based on the understanding of what nature is and what our role is in it. Ancient and modern cultures inform Marco’s practice surrounded by organic and artificial elements. The response is often shaped by sculptural abstract representations of the happenings related to the living organisms cultivated in the studio. The idea of space and its use is structured in his method of work in order to create installations combining traditional and non-traditional disciplines and techniques. Marco’s passion for photography helps to document the process and create photographic works.
