In the eternity of steel my mirroring works are made of, we recover our individual and collective identities. We discover we are the lead actors of Mankind, which reflects its messages and builds its future using symbols.
Born in Moncalieri (province of Turin) on 4 August 1975, Daniele Basso is an Italian artist well known for his works made of mirror-polished steel. These works prompt higher self-awareness in the search of personal identity. He participated in three editions of Venice Biennale. He held exhibitions and had artworks displayed in various parts of the world, among which Carrousel du Louvre (Paris), Seraphicum University (Vatican City), the national gallery of modern and contemporary “GNAM” (Rome), Expo 2015 (Milan), the World of Coca Cola (Atlanta), Officine della Scrittura (Turin), Museo del Parco (Portofino), Shoah Memorial (Milano) not to mention several galleries in New York, Dubai, Saint Petersburg, Tel Aviv, Monte-Carlo, Lugano, Milan, Turin and Bologna. In 2015: "Coke Its Me" (The Coca-Cola Company) and Gigant (SWC Alta Badia - Unesco Park Dolomites). In 2016: "Aquamantio" (Mosca family business since 1916) in Biella. In 2017 "The Prancing Horse” (70th Ferrari Anniversary) and the prizes meant for 67th Sanremo Festival, Star Team Monaco (H.R.H. the Prince Albert II of Monaco) and Inter Football Club.
