Pierre di Sciullo

Speakers, 2016

Pierre di Sciullo was born in Paris in 1961. In 1983 he published “Qui? Résiste”, an experimental publication where he investigates typography as a medium through writing and drawing. In 1995 he designed Amanar, a typeface that allows the Tuareg to set text for print and screen in their traditional writing system. He has taught in design schools, both in France and abroad, since 1987. He has left his mark on Paris, working on such projects as the Centre National de la Danse in Pantin, the T for Nice trams, the facade of the Champollion museum in Figeac, the Forum des Images in Paris, mosaic facades of the Serpentine in Pantin, the anagrams generator in Brest and more. These long-term achievements are the result of a fruitful dialogue with architects and stage designers. The streets are graced with posters designed for events like Nuit Blanche, the Festival d’Aurillac, Chaumont, Quimper and Villeneuve-sur-Lot to name a few. Lettering artist, public writer and graphic designer, he plays with the language of everyday life and keeps the flame of poetic debate within the public eye.
