Michelangelo Bastiani


Michelangelo Bastiani was born in Bibbiena (AR) in 1979. He has the diploma at the Art Institute of Florence. Michelangelo used to live in the United States, first in California, then in New York, and today he works and lives in Tuscany. In his career he can be proud of numerous shows both in Italy and abroad. He has a permanent installation in the centre of Capri.

Today Michelangelo is represented by BOCCARA ART Galleries.

The works by Bastiani are mostly video installations and holograms, centred on the theme of water. Since the beginning of his career, water was the core of the investigation of the artist, who was willing to represent an art that always changes, that it is never the same, some features that the element intrinsically carries with itself. Because of its dynamic nature, water has always been difficult to represent, but the strategy to solve this problem is through technology, that makes possible to have a tangible interaction. This also directly faces the viewer: a waterfall will never have a constant flow, but it will change according to the people passing in front of it, who become effectively a part of the kinetic process of the work. Natural is compared to artificial; the strength of the elements finds its representation in an antithetic marriage, of imprisonment of nature caused by man, but also of an exaltation and necessity to each other.


Michelangelo Bastiani于1979年出生于Bibbiena(AR)。他在佛罗伦萨艺术学院获得文凭。一段时间以来,他住在美国,先是在加利福尼亚,然后在纽约,如今他在托斯卡纳工作和生活。在他的职业生涯中,他可以为意大利和国外的众多演出感到自豪。他在卡普里岛的中心有一个永久性的装置。

今天,米开朗基罗由BOCCARA ART Galleries代表。
