He was born in Venice in 1963 where he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, attending the course of Maestro Emilio Vedova and graduating in 1987 in the painting section.
Since 1984, his works have been exhibited at public institutions and private galleries.
In 1987 he held his first solo show at the Bevilacqua La Masa Gallery in Venice.

Bianchin conceives his own artistic language as a declaration of experimental poetics relating to a request for an exchange between the sensuality of the gaze and the materials used in art.
His canapa (hemp) installations that he has been elaborating and designing since 1983, but also his drawings, constitute an essential and symptomatic component of that free research developed in the various sectors of his own visual language.
In 1992, he carried out his first researches with vitreous material by regularly attending the Murano furnaces in Venice where Bianchin still continues to operate.
In 1993, he was invited to exhibit two large works in woven hemp at the Bevilacqua La Masa Gallery 'Deterritorial' section of the XLVa International Biennial of Visual Arts in Venice, and in 2009 at the VENICE Pavilion at the 53rd Edition of Art where for the occasion he exhibited some of his glass works at the exhibition "... Fa come natura face in foco - Dante" .
In 2011, in Paris, he had a personal room at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs on the occasion of the exhibition: Verre à Venise. 3 artistes, 3 visions - Cristiano Bianchin, Yoichi Ohira, Laura de Santillana, traveling exhibition inaugurated in New York in 2009 at the Barry Friedman Ltd. gallery with the original title:“ Venice. 3 Visions in Glass - Cristiano Bianchin, Yoichi Ohira, Laura de Santillana ”.
For the Venetian artist, designing with glass constitutes a necessary continuous and evolutionary analysis of his own artistic language, an analysis based on the classical validity of the Murano glass techniques that Bianchin compares with new and more current formal languages directed towards innovative plastic aspects of sculpture and of blown canopic jars.
His main themes are mainly developed through themes related to the human body, as is the case with the use of textiles and design. He lives and works in Venice.
The artist's glass and textile works were selected at the 17th-18th-20th-22nd-26th-27th-30th-31st annual competition of the Corning Museum of Glass, New York, and published in the relative issues of the German magazine Neues Glas / New Glass, edition of the New Glass Review, published in the years 1995-1997-1999-2001-2005-2006-2009-2009
