Quayola (Rome, 1982) is an Italian artist based in London who uses technology to create hybrid installations and spaces from video, sculpture, and digital tools.

 

Quayola uses software programming, drawing, photography, and audiovisuals to explore the great masters of painting, Gothic and Baroque architecture, and neoclassical sculpture, through the geometry, sound, movement, and color possibilities that these creative technologies offer him.

 

The viewer witnesses a certain beauty and harmony of textures and light, which originates simultaneously through mathematical precision. Quayola applies aesthetics and creativity to technique, mathematics, and science.

 

Quayola has had access to record at privileged places such as the Vatican Church and the Notre Dame, and frequently collaborates with musicians such as Mira Calix, Mathias Kispert and the Bordeaux National Orchestra. His works have been exhibited at the V&A Museum in London, the How Art Museum in Shanghai, the SeMA in Seoul, the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya in Barcelona, the Sonar Festival in Barcelona, the Sundance Film Festival in Salt Lake City, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and the Biennial of Sao Paulo.
