Stefano Di Lorenzo is a Sydney based artist who explores materiality through sculpture and installation. Di Lorenzo’s interest in materiality is driven by bold intention and justified by abject reasoning and represents itself in various sizes, shapes and forms, taking on appropriated objects and constructions in order to expose, distort and challenge perception of space, form and location. The focus on audience is a major part of Di Lorenzo’s work, creating an overall ambiance and uneasiness accommodated by uncontrollable laughter.
Di Lorenzo completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Sydney College of the Arts in 2015, and was awarded the Deans Award for Sculpture. He has exhibited at Hardware Gallery, Pop Goes the Easel and Sculpture in the Vineyards.
