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).

He is the author of the contemporary art project Viaggio a Hierapytna, that marks the beginning of an open research on the four elements (Earth, Water, Fire and Air). Along with the publication of the Artist's Book Scendeva simile alla notte (IanuArte, 2018), the first presentation of the travelling exhibition dedicated to the Hierapytna Project was held at Rome's RvB Arts Gallery. In 2019, the French Academy in Rome commissioned him a completely new, architectural sized, environment scale video installation, Utopia, which he created with French-Venezuelan writer Miguel Bonnefoy
