VALTER ADAM CASOTTO born in Padua Italy (1980), Italy. Valter currently lives and works in London. He has worked on numerous TV productions as a camera operator and TV format creator. He has worked as senior prosthetic makeup artist in the film industry, on films such as Harry Potter (D. Yates), X-Men: First Class (M. Vaughn), Prometheus (R. Scott) and The Hobbit (P. Jackson). Running parallel to his work in the film industry, he has contined to work on his own personal projects, including design work, painting, video projects and sculptures. Visually inspired and influenced by a combination of William Turner's pictorial art, H.R Giger's visionary surrealist work and Bernini's Baroque sculptural art, his preferred techniques are those of video and sculpture which he recently brought together in his project ‘We Will Never Meet at that Age’. He created a self-portrait of his own ageing physiognomy and had it applied to himself, documenting his parents’ reaction to seeing their son at an age they will never meet in real life with a moving image piece, thus creating an impossible time breach in the fabric of his parents’ existence.
