Angelo Madonna has a background in nautical science and mechanical engineering, followed by an education in fine art, sculpture and new media. He holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) – Art, Design and Technology (2010-2013); and a BA (2004-2007) in Sculpture (Camberwell College of Art, London).
His work explores the affective potentialities emerging from the relationship between objects and humans; how objects trigger our emotional responses and memories; and how these are played out through our locations and dis-locations in space. His approach to art-making is highly multidisciplinary to include Computer Aided Design technology, sculpture, installation, site-specific interventions, photography and performance.
He has presented his work in various site specific venues in London and Italy and he is now increasingly interested in fostering collaborations with galleries, curators and cultural institutions eager to explore the relationship between art, science, technology and education.
