Prof. Mario Minichiello

As academic director at Loughborough University School of Art and Design I have maintained a broad range of interests building on my experience as a practising Artist and Designer working across a wide range of design and mass communications issues. This included working at the Natural History Museum in London, to working as Political Illustrator for the Financial Times and The Guardian Newspaper. I also worked for BBC as their reporting artist covering a large number of high profile international events from Spy Catcher trials to the Birmingham Bombers appeal hearings. My imagery formed part of the BBC news award winning BFTA presentation. This has given me a broad overview of international media, from global news to product placement and adverting. I recently conducted research which was sponsored by the Arts and Humanities Board GB, comparing my own reportage work for the Afghanistan conflict with that of the international media. The resulting research evidence was presented in a paper at the diversity conference 2004, UCLA and was praised in the closing plenary session. I have focused on projects which reveal how the media functions and the effect it has on human diversity. And I have worked to use handmade art as a counter to the excesses of the impersonal and globalising nature of multimedia and mono culture.
