Born in Turin, Italy, in 1976, Pietro Reviglio has exhibited in galleries and institutions around the world. He studied painting at the Art Students League of New York with Robert Cenedella and Mary Beth McKenzie.  He is alumnus of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences of Columbia University, New York, where he gained a  Ph.D. in Astrophysics in 2008 with a thesis on the evolution of galaxies and the large-scale structure of the universe.

His artistic research experiments with the physical process of image formation and perception, visual narrative and the kinematics of images, exploring the borderline between the rational and the irrational, the conceptual and the physical, the oneiric and the hallucinatory, often from a cosmological perspective. 

Reviglio's works has been exhibited in galleries and musuems including the Sidney Mishkin Gallery (New York), CAMeC Museum (Italy), Castel dell'Ovo (Naples), Palazzo Ducale (Genoa), Museo Laboratorio d'Arte Contemporanea (Rome), Palazzo Farnese (French Embassy, Rome), the 54th Venice Biennial, The Italian Academy (New York), Columbia University (New York), the Museum of Oriental Art (Turin), Turin Planetarium/ Museum of Astronomy and Space, the Ishida Taisheisha Hall (Kyoto), Citè de l'Espace Planetarium (Toulouse, France).

His work is present in public and private collections in the US and Europe, including the collections of the Brooklyn Museum (New York), Albright-Knox museum (Buffalo, NY),  Sidney Mishkin Gallery (City University of New York),  Columbia University (New York),  Museo d'Arte Contemporanea (Castle of Rivara, Italy), Anthology Film Archives (New York). Articles on his work appeared on Flash Art, NY Arts, La Stampa, La Repubblica, America24, Yahoo News. 

In 2010 he published the artist book Cinematography of Urban Madness (a limited edition curated by art editor Paola Gribaudo). Copies of this book are kept in major institutions, including the Artist's Book Collections of the Tate Gallery (London), MoMA (NYC), Whitney Museum of American Art (NYC). Untitled #2 from this project has been included in the exhibition Photography: Technology + Art (City University of New York, 2016) alongside the works of Warhol, Sherman, Erwitt and other greats of photography.

He wrote several pieces of short fiction and also contributed to the Astrophysical Journal. He is currently based in London where he collaborates with King's College on several art projects.

His most recent project Beyond Infinity mixes painting and cosmology with cutting-edge fulldome cinema. After the premiere at the Turin Planetarium in November 2017, the film has been selected for the IFF '17 Immersive Film Festival (Portugal),  the IPS 2018 Film Festival (Cité de l'Espace, France) and the 6th Beijing International Science and Technology Film Festival (Beijing Planetarium, China).
