Daniele Catalli is a multidisciplinary artist researcher whose practice embraces a wide range of media, including drawing, installation, publishing, video, relational and public art, wall painting, and performance.

Since 2011, he has been making small-scale installations that foster creativity and community engagement, giving me experience dealing with both artists and the audience.

His research is based on the most intimate human emotions and the invisible threads that connect people, the influences of the environment on these emotions, digging into memory and history and the most immediate and instinctive emotions. He is also interested in the relationship between context and meaning.

In 2020 he was awarded the Plural Tale Award of the CRT Foundation for Modern and Contemporary Art in Turin.

He’s co-founder of Le Stanze Segrete di S., a company that works on the relationship between performance and drawing. The Secret Rooms are part of the Crossing the Sea network.

Daniele is a lecturer at Istituto Europeo di Design.
His books have been acquired by private and public collections including The Oslo National Academy of the Arts Library, Swarthmore College Lafayette College, Salon fur Kunst Buch Wien, Internationale Jugendbibliothek München, The State Library of New South Wales.

His first children's book "La Bataille des Grenouilles et des Souris" published by Amaterra Editions, won the "ALBUMS JEUNESSE - 2018 Award at the Nuit du Livre in Paris.

In 2022 he was awarded for the best illustrated book at the International Geography Festival of Saint-Dié-des-Vosges.

Daniele is currently working on new installations and books projects .
