Painter and engraver Lorenzo Bruschini was born in Frascati in 1974. He attended the prestigious École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris on a scholarship award before graduating from Rome’s Academy of Fine Arts.
Bruschini’s paintings are to be found in various museums, foundations and private collections including the Civic Museum of Taverna, the Municipal Art Gallery of Jesi, the Mario Moderni Foundation in Rome, the Andrea Cefaly Foundation in Catanzaro and the collection of late French poet Yves Bonnefoy. In 2019, a series of drawings by Bruschini were projected onto the façade of Villa Medici, the French Academy in Rome, during its annual Festival of Music and the Visual Arts, while in 2021, the Complesso Monumentale del San Giovanni Museum in Catanzaro held a major retrospective of the artist’s work.
Bruschini has also created an art school in Rome, Les Oiseaux Noirs, basing his courses on the theory that artistic creativity can be unlocked by suppressing the verbal and analytic left hemisphere of the brain in favor of the visual and perceptual right hemisphere.
Bruschini’s own highly imaginative works combine dream-like, mythical references with an elegant, minimalist palette.
