(Città di Castello 1955 -)
BiographyBorn in Città di Castello in 1955, Giorgio Bevignani moved with his family to France at the age of ten, before returning to his native Perugia in 1975. He attended the Art Institute of San Bernardino di Betto of Perugia, where he obtained a diploma of Master of Arts in 1979. He moved to Tuscany, first to Florence then Siena, and resumed his studies at the Institute of Art Duccio di Siena diploma in Applied Arts (Sculpture) in 1981. He attended the l’Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna between 1984-1986 and the Academy of Brera in Milan from 1986-1988. During this period he worked intensively in his new Bolognese studio focusing in particular on shapes and researching the use of new materials. Although Giorgio currently lives and works in Castel San Pietro Terme his artistic displays in recent years have taken him to the far corners of the world: Ancona, Bologna, Cesena, Imperia, Milan, Modena, New York City, Rome, Reggio Emilia, Bogota, Siena, Strasbourg, Basel, Nice, London, Florence.
After his work was noticed by Professor Brian Falconbridge (PPRB), in 2014, Giorgio was invited to submit his candidacy as a member of the RBS Board of Directors. In the same year he was appointed a member of the Company.
“The Spotlight 2015 award was an important recognition…”
Successful exhibitions include: Ancona, Bologna, Cesena, Imperia, Milan, Modena, New York City, Rome, Reggio Emilia, Bogota, Siena, Strasbourg, Basel, Nice, London, Florence.
International recognition for his work followed very quickly afterwards when he won the international competition Spotlight hosted annually by the RBS.
“The Spotlight 2015 award was an important recognition that has allowed me to exhibit at the Andipa Gallery in London with my installation ‘I’m ready to live’.”
The piece reflects a large network like a desert and is dedicated to the millions of people who flee from their lands for a better life or simply to start living again.
As a member of the esteemed RBS institution, Giorgio reflected on this achievement by adding, “Being selected to join the RBS has been for me an honor and also an incentive to continue the kind of research that I will carry on in the future.”
There are many more international markets he has yet to conquer, however, Giorgio – the famed artist from Castel San Pietro – is optimistic: “I have several projects in mind for the future but still in the process of evolution. I will continue to use different materials for both new installations and for sculptures.”
