Fabio Tasso was born in Savona in 1990. His artistic career begins with the attendance of the ceramic craftsmanship in Albisola. The definitive turning point happened by attending the Fine Arts Academy of Genoa, where he completely focused on Sculpture. During his studies, in 2012, he lived and taught in Nepal in the Neydo Tashi Choling Buddhist monastery. There he had the opportunity to study what he discovered to have always been the centre of his research: the emptiness and the relationship that this has with fullness, with the matter. 

After he BFA in Genoa, he moved to Carrara, where he completed his studies with an MFA in Sculpture while he developed his first sculpt-making process. Winner of numerous competitions, he participated in sculpture symposia, artistic residences and started his artistic activity between Europe and the United States. Since 2015 he has been a professor at the Fine Arts Academy in Genoa, teaching Life Drawing, Artistic Anatomy, Sculpture and Artistic Foundry.
