Stefano Bosis was born in Milano, Italy. He currently lives and works in Berlin, Milan and Oporto.
After finishing high school leaves Italy for England, where he approaches the theater. He then moves to Spain where he learns street art. Upon returning to Italy he graduated as an actor in the "commedia dell'arte" and graduated in Computer Science for Digital Communication at the University of Milan. After touring Europe on a motorcycle, he arrived in Berlin in 2012, where he won a residence for artists with a pictorial series on massification and nihilism. In 2014 he was invited for a residence in Colombia, and subsequently he has travelled to Mexico, Guatemala and Cuba. The experience of Central America affects his painting so much that it becomes gestural and dominated by strong and bright colors. Contact with indigenous communities contributed to the formation of his thought and poetics, which suggests accessing an irrational dimension that cannot be explored through science and technology.
