The following biography is from a website devoted to Sardinia. Giuseppe Biasi was born in Sassari in 1885.
Between the ages of 16 and 19 he published caricatures on the humorous sheets of Sassari and devoted himself to painting. In December 1904 he left for Rome. During his stay in Rome in 1905, the Sassari poet Salvator Ruju introduced him to the editorial staff of the French-language newspaper L'Italie and the socialist weekly Avanti della Domenica. In the spring he was in Sassari to continue his studies in Law.
In October he held a solo show of caricatures at the Politeama Verdi in Sassari. In 1906 he won a competition for the covers of the Giornalino della Domenica. He began his collaboration with the Giornalino, which continued regularly until 1910. It was 1907 when he embarked on the first of a series of trips to the countries of Sardinia.Excursions to the villages near Sassari will soon be followed by those in the interior of the island. In 1908 he graduated in Law. The following year he began his collaboration with the writer Grazia Deledda: his illustrations were published in the Giornalino della Domenica, then in well-known magazines such as L'illustrazione italiana and La lettura.
The watercolor Processione nella Barbagia by Fonni is accepted at the Venice Biennale. In 1910-12 it became the fulcrum of the Sassari "Cenacolo", formed by artists and intellectuals. With the painter and illustrator Mario Mossa De Murtas he went to Teulada, a village in the extreme south of the island; both will add the name for some time to their signature. In 1913 he participated in the First Roman Secession and began to make himself known on the national art scene.
