The Bray's Artist Amplified series is a lecture and demonstration series which invites artists and art enthusiasts to share their history, process, and conceptual motivations with the public. Our first ever presenter was long term Resident Artist and 2021 Windgate Fellow, Alessandro Gallo. The below recording has been edited from the live event for the best viewing experience.

We sincerely hope you enjoy this unique opportunity to learn about Alessandro's work, motivations, and conceptual ideas!


Alessandro Gallo

Artist Amplified Series

Recording; September 2021

Alessandro Gallo was born in 1974 in Genoa, Italy and is currently based in Helena, Montana. After studying Law at the University of Genoa, Gallo took a foundation course at Saint Martin’s College of Art in London followed by a BA at Chelsea School of Art, graduating in 2002. While studying painting, he began experimenting with digital photography, manipulating images to create scenes of animals in familiar city settings. By 2005, he decided to give his creatures a physical presence by sculpting them from clay. Gallo and his anthropomorphic characters have received widespread popularity in Europe, with his works being featured in the 237th Annual Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London and the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011. In 2012, he received a first place grant from the Virginia A. Groot Foundation. He is currently a long term Resident Artist at The Archie Bray Foundation.
