Identity & History
Leonardo Frigo, is an Italian artist born in Asiago in 1993. He lives and works in London since 2016. After completing his studies in Art Restoration at the International University of Art of Venice in 2015, after some
experiences in the restoration sector in France (Cathedral of Notre Dame of Chartres), he moved to London.
Over the course of nearly a decade, he actively painted mostly string instruments, creating this unique art form with the purpose of combining music, art and literature in a single object. Through strategically embedded symbols, illustrations and texts, his works stimulate the public to interact with the tools in an alternative way.
Passionate about the world of art from an early age, he participated and exhibited his first works in Venetian cities.
Then, thanks to the collection of seven violins, dedicated to the « Seven Deadly Sins » and a cello inspired by « The Four Seasons by A. Vivaldi », Leonardo has participated in successful exhibitions in Europe and beyond, including Italy, South Korea, France and England. In general, his biographical illustrations have gained worldwide acclaim.
In December 2020, after five years of work and research, Leonardo finished the « Inferno » collection, a tribute to Dante Alighieri for celebrations of the 700th anniversary of his death (1321–2021).
The main aim of the artist is to promote and share Italian culture in the world, through his own art.
Thanks to the « Inferno » project, Leonardo has already shared Dante Alighieri’s masterpiece in Europe, United States, Canada, Brazil, Australia and Asia, in anticipation of international exhibitions.
Currently the artist is working on new artistic projects and he is dedicating himself to the dissemination of the « Inferno » collection, conceived as a traveling exhibition.
