Massimiliano Balò was born in Sicily. He is an impressionist visionary contemporary Photography artist. Through photography he captures one of the infinite possibilities of the reality. His world made of "visions" featured by deformed characters which dissolve in and out of "The Void". He uses his personal technique shooting with a digital camera on a faster manual zooming with slow shutter speed to create a surreal effect to finish the work processing it with his fingers through a touching Pad scream. His works are mostly black and white but he also loves colours. Many of his works are abstract and surrealistic with a impressionist style.. He lives in UK, where in the summer of 2014 he exhibited for the first time in one Art gallery in London.
