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 foundations and private collections including that of late French poet Yves Bonnefoy, the Municipal Art Gallery of Jesi and the Mario Moderni Foundation in Rome. In 2016, he was invited to hold a solo show in the museum spaces of the Scuderie Aldobrandini in Frascati while 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.
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.
