The duo painstakingly embroidered their invented scenes on canvases revealing their extraordinary perseverance and irreverence in choosing to paint with unconventional materials. They reuse materials from older textiles which they acquire on their many travels. In doing so, old becomes new, and from routine, the artists have built their own paradise stitch by stitch.

Chiachio & Giannone, is a duo of artists formed by Leo Chiachio (born 1969, Buenos Aires) and Daniel Giannone (born 1964, Córdoba) who have been working collaboratively since 2003. They have had numerous solo exhibitions including those at Lux Art Institute, Encinitas, California (2020); Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach (2019); SAPH, Shanghai (2018) and Ruth Benzacar Gallery, Buenos Aires (2017 & 2012). They live and work in Buenos Aires. Paradise is their first solo exhibition with Steve Turner.
