Jacopo Cardillo, aka JAGO is an Italian contemporary artist; born in 1987 in Frosinone, he attended the Academy of Fine Arts without ending his studies. At the age of 24, in 2011, he was selected for the Padiglione Italia (Regione Lazio, Palazzo Venezia, Rome) of the 54th edition of the Venice Biennale of Art. He has been already exhibiting in solo and collective exhibition all over Italy.
His art belongs to Sculpture: he is able to manipulate and transform marble and stone, giving us a different perception of the materials. The hard marble may open up to show a tender and soft heart, linked by veins and arteries to the stone. He shapes the material to create surreal pieces and his pop subjects bring back this art discipline with a contemporary look.
