Lorenzo Bruschini

A graduate in Painting from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma in 2007, Lorenzo was awarded scholarships to study in Paris at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (ENSAD) and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA).

In 2008 he engaged in a meaningful correspondence with world famous poet and member of the Collège de France Yves Bonnefoy (1923-2016). To the evocative atmospheres of the poet, he then devoted the experience and works of “Initiation à la poésie“ (Artist Residence, Dusseldörf, Germany / Solo Exhibition, Teatro Quirino in Rome, 2009). Back in Italy, he established the Atelier Les Oiseaux Noirs and became one of the artists permanently represented by RvB Arts Gallery of Rome. Over the following years he focused his attention on philosophy (Nietzsche and the theme of identity), classical music and ancient Greek, further pursuing them as a form of creative connection with painting. Upon his return from France, he held the solo exhibitions "Self-Shaping Drawings" (Maison Gai Saber, 2012) and "Self-Shaping Paintings" (RvB Arts Gallery, 2014).

Also in 2014, he won the "ArtAmari Residency" international competition, with his "Progetto Hierapytna" and set off for a journey centered on the origins and identity themes. He traveled through Greece’s mainland and the Peloponnese, all the way to Crete where, in the Amari Valley by Mount Ida, he created the Artist’s Book "Scendeva simile alla notte". In 2016, his personal exhibition "Self-Shaping", curated by RvB ARTS, was presented upon invitation at the prestigious museum spaces of the Scuderie Aldobrandini in Frascati (Rome, Italy).
