Roberto and Renato Miaz were born in Milan in 1965 and 1968 respectively, where they attended the Art School and European Institute of Design. Since childhood, the two have shared their lives collaborating with each other in work and play, and as artists have followed a very unconventional path.
Instead of opting for, in their words, the "classic route of High School – Academy – Gallery", roberto e renato decided to explore the world and gain invaluable life experiences as well as technical skills, in order to fully develop their vision and goals before making their artistic debut. Accordingly, with the spirit of the Renaissance artist in their hearts, they set out to expose themselves to "the most diverse disciplines and situations".
Between 1990 and 1996, the brothers had theirs works showcased in popular clubs in Milan, as opposed to in art galleries, in an attempt to exhibit their art in unconventional spaces frequented by myriad of youngsters. As well, these highly successful ventures allowed the Miaz brothers to wholly observe the reactions of their viewers in a natural setting, as opposed to in a ‘white cube’ environment.
Later, between 1996 and 2000 the brothers began working on a series of creative projects for corporations, in another attempt to experiment with non-traditional venues for their art. However, soon after in 2001, they decided that it was time to embark on a new journey, and thus chose New York as their next destination, where they first laid the groundwork for their original style. However, after the incident of 9/11, the brothers opted for Paris to continue the photography experience. After five years working and experimenting with videos photos and paintings they begin a tour of South America, Southeast Asia, and Europe, which would eventually lead them to their present home in Valencia, Spain.
It was on this journey that the brothers laid the foundations of the Antimatter project condensing all the experiences lived and developing aesthetically the philosophical problematics concerning the human being, as always central subject of their research.
