Conceptual artist Andy Picci is a Mentor for the Creative Multimedia Design programme at Istituto Marangoni Firenze. The artist explores identity, social media, and self-discovery in the digital age. His work offers a dreamy, playful perspective, exploring societal issues through digital and mixed media and using virtuality to connect people and create communities.
His work was exhibited in international galleries and art institutions such as Museum Der Bildenden Künste in Leipzig, Magasins Généraux in Paris, König Galerie in Berlin, CADAF (Crypto & Digital Art Fair), and OÖ Art in Linz
His work offers a dreamy and playful glance over deeper societal explorations that steers his artistic process. Through philosophers like Guy Debord and Jean Baudrillard, he developed a fascination with the illusion of the self and the meaning of identity construction.
A quest of identity which he explores through digital mediums, surrealistic atmospheres, interactive artworks and mixed media. Through his creations, he offers to see the world through a different perspective rather than the one dictated by society. In that sense, he approaches virtuality as a way to connect and create communities.
