Biography

Bruno comes from an artistic family, with both his grandfather and mother being artists themselves. It was therefore only natural for him to take it up from a young age and he viewed drawing as a game and an entertainment as he didn’t have a TV. Alongside his painting, he has always been an avid rollerblader and actually originally wanted to go pro but, upon realizing there wasn’t a huge market for professional rollerblading, decided to continue pursuing painting. Whilst he now dedicates himself to art and paints eight hours a day, five days a week, he continues to dabble in other opportunities, as he feels he needs to have movement outside of art to connect and inspire him, and because to him art is sacred and he never wants to be driven only by selling his work.

For Bruno, his work is all about freedom and expression and how his process makes him feel. He finds that it balances and grounds him and likens it to meditation. Sometimes when he’s overthinking in life, he sees it first in his work. When starting a piece, Bruno has no agenda and he paints entirely from his imagination, “just like a kid.” He starts by making marks on the canvas and, like you would search for patterns amongst the clouds, he searches for his subject. His pieces sometimes take 8 sessions, other times 20 or 30 and once he starts a piece he always finishes it, even if it’s years later.

Whilst Bruno thinks that artistic exploration is interesting, he also believes that sometimes people forget about beauty. When people see his work, he simply hopes their response will be “I find it beautiful.”
