Giaconi was born in Buene Aires, Argentina and currently lives in Mexico City. He attended the “Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredón: School of Art” in 2011 and since then, his work has developed into various art forms such as sculptures, drawings and installations. He was awarded at the Philips Art Expression for Young Talents Contest and was presented the Distinction and Merit Award at the Salón Nacional de Dibujo. Giaconi was also selected for the first and second ArteBA-Petrobras Prize and was a 2010 recipient of the Centro de Investigaciones Artísticas (CIA) scholarship.

Mauro Giacconi’s artistic unique approach redefines the act of drawing using personal reflection and references. His work also displays awareness of a life lived under oppression and dictatorship.

Where can you catch Giaconi’s impressive art today? His current exhibition “From the Depths of Time” is currently being shown at the Museo Universitario Del Chopo until July 24, 2016. The exhibition includes three of the artist’s works that represent his creative process. Firstly is a fleeting mural that encompasses the walls of the room, incorporating architectural elements from the museum’s immediate surroundings. Secondly, his installation Alma (Soul) is made up of “rocks” formed from empty plastic bags. Finally, the museum’s storage room is used to project the video Línea transversal (Transversal Line), which records an action inspired by an episode from the military dictatorship in Uruguay.
