Enrica Lovaglio Costello

Enrica Lovaglio Costello has been freelancing in the fields of multimedia, architecture and graphic design for the last ten years. She is an Associate Professor in the Art and Design department at Cal Poly, specializing in media arts and technology, with emphasis in visual narrative construction, creative content development, cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural models. She practiced an exploratory use of technology for storytelling, and stimulated interdisciplinary efforts and collaborations to strengthen the understanding of global culture and develop innovative ideas for pedagogical practice. She has long been an advocate of art careers that hinge less on "work for others" vs. a more self-directed entrepreneurial approach that encompasses both expertise in business knowledge and alterations in mindset.

Throughout her childhood Enrica's visual sense was exposed to diverse cultures, since her family lived in Egypt, Borneo, Singapore, France. In Italy she studied architecture, where beauty, function and meaning all intersect in one magnificent sculpture that becomes part of a living city; in France she studied city planning, to deepen her understanding of the context of architecture and expand her design ability to the larger scale of the urban environment; in United States she studied multimedia arts, to extend her design knowledge into the virtual. Enrica's desire is to push boundaries and discover new creative territories.
