Artist ( Description ): 

Working and living together as partners in Buenos Aires, Argentina Leo Chiachio & Daniel Giannone both trained as painters and now use threads and fabric as their painterly medium to create hand embroidery and textile mosaics as they “paint with needles”. Their embroidery is a celebration of the family portrait, using themselves and their dogs as the subjects they find new and imaginative ways of depicting themselves, filled with humor and fantasy, as they consider the changing concepts around family. Chiachio & Gianonne’s textile mosaics are references to LGBTQ artists and their legacy in Latin America. Chiachio & Giannone recently completed a residency at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, CA and have shown at Chamber Gallery, New York, NY; Bernice Steinbaum Gallery, Miami, FL; the Boston Center for the Arts, Boston, MA; and the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD. They have also shown extensively all over the world, including Argentina, China, France, Italy, Mexico, the Philippines, United Kingdom, and the Netherlands. Chiachio & Giannone will be Lux’s first artist collective.
