Giano Currie is a well cultured Surinamese-born Fine Art Photographer who currently lives and works in Miami. He produces his art by leveraging dye sublimated aluminum plates to his exotic-modern style of photography which fosters a dialogue between viewer and art. By sculpting his subjects with shadows and painting their symmetry with light, he is able to create a colorful body of work that leaves empty-space vulnerable to individual imagination. His photography differentiates itself through the use of in-studio red and blue lights, which creates an intenser hue when reflected off his subject’s skin. His recognizable photography technique furthermore confronts the viewer with a 3-D type feeling when transferred to a reflective surface.
Giano’s choice of using reflective metal as a tool serves a unique purpose not often seen in photography. Including the reflective characteristics of aluminum, Giano is able to subconsciously include the viewer in his work, fostering an unspoken dialogue between his art and in turn; its witness. This sets the stage for questioning our societal acceptance.
While Giano's exotic-modern style can be viewed online, he highly encourages his appreciators to view his work in person as a digital representation does not do his reflective style justice. In this context, a private viewing can be arranged with the artist by contacting us by email or direct message on Instagram.
