Alessandro Bavari was born in Latina, a coastal town south of Rome, Italy, on april 1963.
Grown up in an italo-french family, he was early attracted by artistic matters and decided to attend art college, where he began making photomontages at the age of 15.
Then, he studied scenography, photography, history of art and various other topics at the Academy of Fine Arts, in Rome, where he developped strong grounding in the techniques of oil, watercolours and engraving, while experimenting at the same time methods mixing tar, glue, industrial paint and exploring photographic printing techniques.
During these years, he took the habit of making numerous photographs everywhere he goes : human and animal matters, objects and architecture, pictures and landscapes, fossils and materials, which join his mental museum, also strongly influenced by indo-european cultural myths and allegories as well as 14th and 15th century artists.
Since 1993, he adds digital manipulation to his art, developping a personal artistic language using industrial and organic products from nature before incorporating photographic process, then computer digitalization, which leads to “a kind of contamination among the arts dissolving the boundaries which distinguish them”.
Alessandro Bavari lives and works in Italy.
Alessandro also has a Facebook. If time and fortune provided me the luxury of bringing Dante‘s Inferno or a HellRaiser reboot to the screen I would enlist the help of this man. What you are about to see is possible the most disturbing and beautiful piece of cinema I have ever had the opportunity to watch. Enjoy…mortals!
