Stefano Losi was born in 1969 in Lake Como, near Milan, where he was raised and classically educated in fine arts. After having received his graduate degree at the Luigi Bocconi University of Milan in 1993, he has been senior manager in different International Institutions, and he is currently first officer at the United Nations in New York, where he is also President of the UNSRC Literary Cultural Circle. In 2005 he was nominated Knight of the Italian Republic by President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi. “Violent Dances Fade”(Libertarian Poetical Fragments) is a personal art and poetry project created in Milan in 1991, and further developed in London and New York, that combines on linen studies of the human figure in acrylics, oxidized metal minerals and intense original poetry. Following a long series of events organized since the early 1990s in Europe, including several shows and poetry readings in formal and alternative spaces, ranging from galleries, to workers unions and social centers, his art has been honored with two solo exhibitions at the United Nations in New York. Antonio Maria Costa, UN Under-Secretary-General, wrote: “This is a “splendid union”… In the words of these poems I find the same hope I cherish when I observe the World.” Four books collecting his visual art and epigrams, providing an overview of the author’s artistic work in the respective creative periods, were published in 1996, 2001, 2010 and 2013. Stefano Losi’s work has been featured in different international publications, among which a book on Italian contemporary artists curated by Renato Miracco, and published under the auspices of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The author continues to create visual art and poetry in Chelsea, New York. Stefano's 2013 solo exhibition, Arid Rain, was on view from May 12-31, 2013 and his 2011 solo exhibition Under the Burnt Walls was on view from November 16-30, 2011.
