stefano bombardieri

  • biography
Born in 1968 in Brescia, Italy.

He spent part of his childhood in the workshop of his father, himself a sculptor. It is here that he experimented with the use of artistic techniques and materials by developing very original applications.

Influenced naturally by his father, he is also influenced by great masters of art such as: Boccioni, Balla, painters of the futurist movement, Henry Moore, sculptor of the beginning of the XXth century, or Piero Manzoni. Stefano Bombardieri starts from a figurative approach to advance in the conceptual. To arrive at a more profound work, he approaches the world of Piero Manzoni.

He has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Italy and Europe.

He is interested in all forms of art from the world of design to applied art.

His creative subjects are based on a philosophical approach, the artist speaks of pain, present in Western culture, of time and its perception. Even if his work is based more and more on an inner research of the notion of aesthetics, his works are still linked to the hyperrealist movement, his work is qualified: heterogeneous, minimal, conceptual, featuring the use of a great mix of tools and artistic mediums, such as the video-installation which is recurrent in his current work.

His sculptures are quite believable, in other words they have an absolutely realistic presence, made of meticulously rendered details, plastic perfection of mimesis, balanced stylistic complacency. And yet it is "their" truth itself, their truer-than-life aspect that makes them surreal, even disturbing.

This artist's rhinoceroses, sumo wrestlers, and many other possible subjects almost take on the appearance of fossils frozen in a synthetic, artificial fixity. A parallel life so perfect and incorruptible that it provokes amazement. But in the end it is only art, the magic of art that makes these alchemies possible and the works of Stéfano Bombardieri take us by the hand, with an apparent lightness, pleasantly enchanted, towards concepts like the one of the relationship between reality and fiction, of life and its duplicate, so actual today but omnipresent in the atavistic collective imagination, and fundamental matter of the reflection on art and on its language.
