Federico Murgia is an Italian artist that lives and works in Haarlem, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Minimalism and reduction… one of the first things the viewer notices when looking at the works of Federico Murgia. Owing to the tradition of conceptual, abstract artists, such as Sol LeWitt and La monte Young, the native Sardinian (born 1989) places great importance on what is essential: lines, symbols, markings, the contrast of black and white. He manages to create rhythmical images through  classic techniques, such as graphic reproduction or drawing, and furthermore creates sculptures or technically complex light and sound installations.

Murgia is especially passionate about audio and sounds. This causes him to explore the correlations and relationships between sound, light and other immaterial elements. At the same time, he explores how immateriality may be made into something tangible. He uses all mediums mainly to create experiences, to trigger feelings and associations.
