Giancarlo, born in 1962, is the son of a painter and one of eight children (including the celebrated maestro Pino Signoretto ).
Giancarlo's first productions are influenced by the trends of the 1980s.
The Eighties were the time of the African famine, the height of the Cold War, and also its end, marked by the fall of the Berlin Wall.
His production was marked by art movements of the time include Neo Geo, The Pictures Generation and the international trend of neo-expressionism that manifested itself in Germany, the United States and Italy (where it was known as Transavanguardia).
The decade was exemplified by artists such as Anselm Kiefer, Jörg Immendorf, Enzo Cucchi, Francesco Clemente and Julian Schnabel. Street art and graffiti began to gain recognition, including key artists including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Kenny Scharf.
