Kurt Piazza is a multi-media artist working primarily in video, installation and performance. His video work deals with space, architecture and sound as reactionary elements of the visual narrative and explores the notion that physical space has a history and architecture can serve as a metaphor for the fusion of time and space.
Mixing emotive imagery and compelling sound, his aim is to contextualize the electronic media format into a cerebral component of architectural space.
Piazza is a graduate of the University of South Florida, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Electronic Media. He is an alumnus of Hillsborough Community College.
Piazza has exhibited work both regionally and nationally, including Art Basel, Miami Beach, as well as the Conley Gallery at the University of California-Fresno. He recently had his first solo exhibition, "The Future Belongs to Ghosts", at the HCC-Ybor School of Visual and Performing Arts Gallery.
