Diego Bianchi was born in 1969 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he continues to live and work, making large-scale sculpture and installations.
Formally trained as a graphic designer, Bianchi has been working within a fine-art context since 2002, a transition that was spurred by the economic and political crisis that hit Argentina the previous year. His large-scale immersive sculptural installations are constructed with found objects, drawing attention to the excess and waste of consumer culture. Bianchi’s works are activated by both planned performances and spontaneous viewer participation. Greatly influenced by Dada and the twentieth-century Spanish artist, Antoni Tápies, Bianchi’s 2015 WasteafterWaste was installed in direct dialogue with a work by Tápies in the Pérez Art Museum in Miami.
