Sabatino Cersosimo was born in Turin in 1974; he lives and works in Berlin.
Cersosimo initially studied advertising and design and then subsequently received a degree in decoration from the Academy of Fine Arts in Turin in 1999.
Cersosimo uses essentially two techniques: he paints with oil on chipboard or with oil on steel on which he has oxidised part of the surface. In both techniques he freely uses the characteristics of the surfaces as part of his finished painting. With the oxidation in particular, this element becomes very much a part of the work and is often used to become hair, beards or even shadows of the figure.
Cersosimo has participated in many shows, particularly in Germany and Italy.
