Alessandro Gallo was born in 1974 in Genoa, Italy and is now based in Helena, Montana. After studying Law at the University of Genoa, Gallo moved to London where he studied at Saint Martin's College of Art and at Chelsea School of Art and Design.
Gallo is renowned for his anthropomorphic, hybrid sculptures. Animals often evoke strong associations that make them ideal in portraying, sometimes humorously, our basic disposition or nature. In combining animal heads and the meaning or characterisation they may evoke, with the silent language of a human body and the cultural codes of fashion, Gallo creates nuanced portrayals of modern individuals, the larger subcultures they belong to and the habitat we share.
