Since 2000 Piero has devoted himself to figurative works and writing. He has participated in exhibitions and published several books. More recently, Piero has approached the techniques of digital painting: a new artistic strand able to emulate the classical ways of painting, thanks to digital technologies.

After studying at the Brera Art Academy in Milan, Piero Campanini started working as a comic book artist for some Italian publishers and later as a visualiser for advertising agencies. These experiences introduced him to the world of advertising where he worked for many years as a creative, specialising in communication for mass market products for television, and finally founded a company for advertising creativity in Milan. Tosicampanini is still a small agency to which he offers his consulting services.

In recent years his works have been exhibited at the Galleria Bongiovanni in Bologna (2010), at the Chie Gallery in Milan (2011), again in Milan at the Made4Art Gallery (2019), at The art Company in Como (2020) and at the Casa del Console Museum of Contemporary Art in Calice Ligure (2021).
