After obtaining his artistic maturity (artistic high school "E. Simone") and then a degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lecce, the artist immediately shows a pictorial predisposition for informal and abstract expressionism. He collaborates with other artists in numerous exhibitions.
In the group show We are moving (1996) at the space Arte e dintorni di Bari , which groups together some students from various Italian academies, he participates as an artist representing the painting course (1) of the Salento Academy.
In 2014 he produced two canvases for the film "I NOSTRI RAGAZZI" by the director Ivano De Matteo where he painted the portraits of the protagonists, the actors Alessandro Gassman and Barbora Bobulova.
In recent years the artist has projected himself in an introspective pictorial language using the representation of the figurative alternating with the informal. As in the book "Aut Aut Aut" by Kierkegaard, Schiavone poses the question of the choice between the ethical being and the aesthetic being; exploring, pictorially and psychologically, these two fundamental characteristics of man.
