Gianfranco Bianchi-Creative Director

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Gianfranco Bianchi spent his formative years in Switzerland, before moving to Miami in the early 1990s. As a versatile and exceptionally talented artist, Bianchi has been creating a buzz on Magic City's scene with a variety of projects ranging from renderings for some of the most anticipated architectural projects in the world to art direction and video editing for acclaimed arts organizations in Miami; most notable is his recent collaboration with the renowned New World Symphony on the inaugural "Symphony After Hours: Late Night at the Lincoln" in December 2008. He reprised his role as art director for the symphony's highly anticipated "Late Night" event in December of 2009 and the NWS gala in 2011. R2 also did the spot promo for Miami Beach’s Sleepless Night 2011.

Gianfranco's true passion lies in 3D animation. Most recently, he put his skills to use in the much-buzzed-about "The Beach Chronicles", where he executes all art-related details; from sketching the characters to modeling their surroundings in 3D and bringing them all to life. Paired for this occasion with his long-time collaborator Kevin Sharpley of Kijik Multimedia, Bianchi hopes to create a cultural phenomenon that will draw its inspiration from Miami's recent cultural boom, presenting "The Beach Chronicles" as another element that puts Miami on the map as a destination for those who seek artistic content worthy of a deeper thought. His latest venture has taken him to the mobile operating systems world where he has collaborated with various developers and created The Beach Chronicles Android App and various android customization apps.

An avid supporter of culture and arts, Bianchi frequently donates his time and services to local arts organizations (such as the Miami Beach Cinematheque, among others), and serves on Miami Fashion Association's organizing committee.
