Biancoshock (Italy, 1982) is a mysterious conceptual and urban artist based in Milan, well-known for his ironic, provocative performances and installations - more than 900 - set in Italy, Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, England, Kosovo, Hungary, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malesia, Malta, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovak, Slovenia and Spain. He took part at the Urban Art festival, and displayed his artworks in several universities (including Zagreb, Ljubljana, and Bratislava), and at TEDx di Oporto in 2014.
His identity remains unknown: Biancoshock wishes to remain in anonymity, hiding himself behind a balaclava. The artist’s expression and attitude drove him to establish a new avant-Garde form which he named Ephemeralism. Ephemeralism has the purpose of producing experiences - as Biancoshock calls his installations - that have to exist briefly in space but limitlessly in time through photo and video documentations. Biancoshock vehicle messages through his artworks in a simple and effective way: his art is directed to all the people, without taking into account borders and differences. The core themes investigated by the artist are mainly issues of the environment, misery, and stress of the modern age.
