Samuel di Blasi graduated in sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Turin where
he started to work. 
In 2000 he was in London, where he perfected his artistic language in the studio of
Noriaki Maeda. His monumental works describe the link between man and nature.
The artist idealizes the two universes by freezing them: this still image creates
metaphysical worlds linked to dreams. «I like to represent water using fire, because
they are two opposite elements, opposite, but both alive. I use photography to stop
the suggestion that I see and the beauty that will lead me to
the realization of the work. I grew up through photography and the super-eight,
made first by my grand-father and then by my father».
Samuel Di Blasi uses the short film technique as a representation of the non-expressible
in words and considers himself a visual sculptor, a creator of worlds that can be crossed.
“We often observe shapes that don’t want to be description of themselves but simply
be something that looks like something else,
like the idea of seeing a cloud and wanting to climb it”.
In 2015 he realized at the National Mountain Museum of Turin the personal exhibition
«Lo scalatore di Nuvole» (The Climber of Clouds), whose art book is published by
Riccardo Cordero (Lizea Arte Edizioni).
In 2018 he realized at ADD-Art Gallery in Spoleto the personal exhibition
«Sognando Sogni», curated by Roberto Sottile, and published his last book (ADD Edizioni).
In 2020 he created the work «Uomo Onda» commissioned by Arena Italia for the Olympic
Games in Tokyo. At the same time, the production company Roundabout in Milan,
interested in its history, is making the docu-film «L’uomo onda».
