Nico Vascellari was born in Vittorio Veneto in 1976. He left the university to focus on his singing for With Love, a punk/noise band with which he has produced several albums and toured throughout Europe, USA and Japan. The intensity of performance is one of the starting points of Vascellari's artistic research. His work includes the use of media such as sculpture, photography, video and installation. His performances were recently defined as “storms of feedback between the performer, the audience and the space”. (Andrea Lissoni on “Tema Celeste”). Vascellari was awarded the First International Prize for Performance for his project “Nico & The Vascellari” by a committee headed by Marina Abramovic, who invited him to join her group, IPG.
