About Federico Clapis
The Social Story

Federico Clapis (born 4 April 1987, Milan) is an Italian contemporary artist.

He has developed his career in a unique way, opening new itineraries and horizons in the art world. For years Clapis worked “undercover” producing viral videos on social networks and accumulating millions of fans and views.

In September 2015, at the height of the media popularity, he decided to move away from pure entertainment and converted his online presence into a tool for the dissemination of his artistic works hitherto kept hidden.

He successfully combines new, classic and social media in his production while he remains one of the most engaging artists on the social networks
