Leopoldo D'Angelo[1] (born 11 July 1995 in Turin, Italy, better known by the pseudonym "Dangiuz" (pronounced [ˈdandʒuts]), is an Italian contemporary visual artist, digital artist[2] and art director specializing in sci-fi themes.[3] His work has been featured in art networks, TV channels and magazines such as Arte,[4][5] Wallpaper*,[6] NVIDIA Studio Standouts,[7] Juxtapoz Magazine,[8] Sohu[9] and Digital Production,[10] and showcased in various museums and galleries worldwide. He also took part in the creation of Rui Hachimura's Cherry Blossom kimono design[11] and Maserati's MC20 concept art.[12]

Style and career[edit]

His work, artistic style and concepts fall under the Sci-Fi and Cyberpunk categories,[13][14] and his figure is often linked to digital art,[15] 3D design, Sci-Fi/Cyberpunk genres in cinema[16][17] and NFTs,[18][19] sometimes in controversial terms.[20][21] His art is produced with 3D computer graphics software and depicts dystopian scenarios with references and hints to Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell, whomst the artist stated to be inspired from.[22][23] He mentions Vincent van Gogh as his all time favorite painter, while Syd Mead and Beeple are the contemporary artists that influence him the most.[24]


In February 2021, "Grand Challenge", one of D'Angelo's artworks, was one of the first digital artworks sold as a non-fungible token by an Italian digital artist.[25] In March 2021, upon digital art and NFTs gaining popularity due to Beeple's Everydays: the First 5000 Days sale at Christie's, D'Angelo rose to prominence together with other digital artists,[26] establishing himself in the following months as one of the most prolific digital artists selling single edition artworks (1/1s) as NFTs on the curated invite only platform SuperRare, along with other popular digital artists such as XCOPY and Pak.[27]
