alessandro bavari

I was born in 1963 and I attended the art school and then the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, studying scenography and art history there. After getting a strong grounding in the classic techniques of oil painting watercolour and engraving, I was ready to create a new visual language, and to do so I evolved my own techniques using mixed media including tar, glue, industrial paint and chemical photographic etching. The forms used to create the images came from various natural objects such as bones, plants, fossils. I did this for some years until, in 1993, I found the computer, which allowed me to go far beyound the limits of the manual techniques. I treat the computer like any other working instrument, like a brush or palette or a darkroom. Using Photoshop misses out the manual manipulation stage, but allow me to go straight to the thinking process. However, there are certain processes, like etching on metal with chemicals, which the computer can emulate, but never replace. Meanwhile I took part to collective exibition and I gave personal exibition in many galleries, working also for many agencies.
