Sabato Visconti


Sabato Visconti is a Brazilian born visual artist and photographer based in Western Massachusetts. Sabato began experimenting with glitch art processes in 2011 with the help of a defective memory card that randomly wrote zeroes on JPEG files. This experience marked a profound change in his artistic journey. Since then, Sabato's glitch photography has been featured in publications like TIME Magazine, WIRED, and AI-AP’s “Latin American Fotografia” Anthology; his work has also been shown throughout the world in galleries like the Tate Britain, LACDA, and others.
