Barbieri Michelangelo

Michelangelo Barbieri was born in 1974 in Bologna, where he currently lives and works.

He attended the Bologna Academy of Fine Arts and graduated in Setting (set designing and scene painting). Elaborating drama pieces into projects for theatre settings, which made him realise that he could apply the same modus operandi to sculpture.

He started in 2000 sculpting his first work, Clouds, made of copper and iron. He then moved on to other subjects, such as Bridges and Houses, and more recently Light ships.

Michelangelo Barbieri represents a new proposal for Galleria Forni. The presentation of his work will start in ArtHelsinki and will follow onto other art fairs in Italy and abroad (Art Verona in October, Artefiera Bologna in January and St’Art Strasbourg in November) and will permanently be represented by the gallery in Bologna.
