Luca Dipierro is an artist, animator, and writer born in Italy and living in the US. His cut-out animations, filmed in stop motion with marionettes made out of paper and old book cloth, have been called “a perfect balance between creepy and charming” (The Huffington Post), and "weirdly charming and unerringly unsettling" (The Quietus). His work has been shown in theaters, galleries, and film festivals worldwide. Dipierro is the author of the art zine Das Ding; the illustrated novel in cards A Wooden Leg (2014); the collection of short prose Biscotti neri (2011); and numerous art booklets. For the Italian press Interno Poesia, he is curating and translating an anthology of Frank Stanford’s poetry, forthcoming in 2024. His latest animated film is called The Cadence, A Tale of Paper and Cloth (2022).
He lives in Portland, OR with his partner, writer Leni Zumas, and their son.
