Daniele Sigalot was born in Rome in 1976. He is creatively raised in the advertising field, where he works for seven years among several agencies in Italy, Spain and Great Britain. In 2007 he quits his job as creative in Saatchi & Saatchi London to dedicate himself full time to the artistic project named Blue & Joy, which he founded with Fabio La Fauci in 2005. The project’s name becomes for years a real nom de plume of  the Sigalot/La Fauci duo that continues a prolific four-handed production till 2013. At the end of 2014 this duo dissolves its partnership and Daniele Sigalot goes on in his solo career focusing his works on installations.
The centre of his research spins around the ambiguity between the perception of the materials he uses, and their actual nature, creating a contrast that is the core of his entire production. His most recognizable works are certainly the massive paper planes installations, apparently made out of the most ephemeral material, while actually crafted out of metal.
