Nico Vascellari was born in 1976 in Italy and is a visual artist. Vascellari’s incorporation of sound in his works is attributed to his background in punk rock bands. Rather than identify as a musician, the artist prefers to see it through a sound and social activism lens due to his involvement with underground culture alongside his music. Vascellari’s work seamlessly combine music, performance, and visual art in a seamless and coherent manner. His art seeks to arise discomfort both among viewers and himself as the artist creating the works.

The Italian artist’s work creates a mysterious glamour around chaos and destruction while inviting viewers to encourage a sense of distant familiarity. He has shown at the 52nd Venice Biennale and Manifesta7. Recent solo shows include Whitworth Art Gallery (Manchester), Estorick Collection (London) and Villa Medici (Rome). Vascellari currently lives and works in Italy.
