Claudio Sinatti is a multimedia artist who lives and works in Milan, Italy. He started as a graphic and graffiti artist in the early ’90s, before moving onto directing in film and video. As a director he created music promos for Italian bands such as Casino Royale, Neffa, Carmen Consoli, Alex Britti and 99 Posse. In 1999 Sinatti founded a collective for audio-visual experimentation that drew together videomakers, photographers, illustrators and musicians all of whom bought their expertise to a wide variety of projects.
Recently Sinatti has explored the frontiers of live electronics and audio-visual installations, crossing between personal artistic research and commercial projects. One example is his 2007 work, where Henry Hathaway’s 1966 movie ‘Nevada Smith’ was twisted to ‘A Shaved Mint’ and re-edited into a 16 panning collage including every single shot. Most recently he has exhibited a 12 custom monitor interactive installation called ‘Per Mille Giraffe!’
Claudio Sinatti has exhibited internationally and collaborated with artists as diverse as Christian Fennesz, Scanner and Stephan Mathieu.
