2041 Art and Design Building; MSN: 1C3
Born in Brooklyn, NY on September 17, 1993, Giacomo grew up in the suburbs on Long Island. He moved to Saint Augustine, FL midway through fifth grade, where he has lived since. Before receiving his BFA from Flagler College in 2016 with an emphasis in printmaking and video, he attended FSU with the intent to study medicine. During his senior year at Flagler College, his first son (Judah) was also born. Since graduation Giacomo has devoted much of his time to providing for his new family, but is excited and eager to create new bodies of work during his time at GMU.
Most recently, Giacomo has been working with a local homeless shelter in Saint Augustine called the Saint Francis House. He spends his time there repairing bicycles for the homeless as a medium for social art. The free exchange provides a way to make meaningful connections and interactions with a community that is often times isolated from the public.
