Originally from Italy, and moving to Canada as a child, Rocco Turino was drawn into the world of makers through his parents and his ancestral lineage of artisans.
Turino graduated from OCAD’s Sculpture/Installation program before moving to Montreal to complete MFA at Concordia University in the mid 90’s. There he received a McConnell Fellowship that enabled him to attend Glasgow of Art for a semester as an exchange student. He later returned to the UK in 2000, settling in London for the next 20 years.
Turino has exhibited in Canada and the UK and completed commissions for residences in Mallorca, London, Toronto and Los Angeles.
