Giorgio Stefanoni (b. 1987) is an art director and digital designer based in Milan who graduated from the Politecnico di Milano in Architecture, specialising in Visual Design at Scuola del Castello. The bold and colourful series Unknown Geometries provides intriguing angles on metropolitan architecture, focusing on urban details that have become symbols of the everyday. Cast against gradients of cloudless blue sky, the textural details are magnified and the anonymity of globalised structures is accentuated. Windows and staircases become structures of a nameless world and, through pop-coloured vignettes, Stefanoni provides a fresh perspective on technological growth. Meanwhile, striking pink concrete is matched by an equally bright sky. Through marrying such bright colours the artist comments on where digital enhancement and natural elements become indivisible – the organic and the man made are no longer separate. www.giorgiostefanoni.com.
