Vito Drago

Vito Drago is an Italian-born artist who studied firstly in Milan and then at Central St Martin's School of Art, London. He has exhibited regularly with England & Co, and his solo exhibition Quesito indagine espediente was held in the Castello Beccadelli di Marineo in his hometown of Palermo, Sicily in late 2009.

Drago has worked in a variety of media and many of the works illustrated here reflect his interest in the materiality of books and documents. Recent works have included a series of light-boxes his Vanitas series, which allude to 'the ultimate futility of attempts to control appearance' by imposing pierced outlines of schematic 'fashion' designs on to medical x-ray film sheets. In 2010, his recent x-ray lightbox works were on view in the project space at England & Co.
