Gianpietro Carlesso was born in Bolzano, Italy in 1961, and lives and works in Cormons, Italy. He was educated at the Trento State Art Institute and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Urbino.
Carlesso’s favourite medium has always been marble. In recent years, he has connected with scientists and conducted a number of studies on the concept of infinity and attempted to visualize it through his most celebrated series of Curvature. He was asked to represent the City of Milan in the 2008 Venice Biennial of Architecture with the monumental work Equilibrio dinamico della città in divenire.
Gianpietro Carlesso works are currently in important international public collections including: the Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg, Germany; The Mannheim Kunsthalle, Mannheim, Germany; The Deutsche Bank Art Collection, Frankfurt; The Deutsche Post, Dortmund, Germany; The Museum of Modern Art in Bolzano, Italy; the City of Milan; and the City of Bolzano, Italy, as well as in various important private collections in Italy and abroad.
