Since the 22nd of December, 2015, the Blue hall of the Research museum of the Russian Art Academy has been hosting an exhibition featuring works by the Italian artist Bruno Ceccobelli.
Bruno Ceccobelli was born in Montecastello di Vibio (Todi-Perugia) in 1952. Along his forming way he meets different masters. Deep gratitude he feels for his teacher Toty Scaloia, informal abstract artist, with whom he graduates in scenic design at the “Accademy of fine arts” in Rome. Ceccobelli loves and studies artists such as Malevich, Kandiskij, Klee, De Chirico, Brancusi, Beuys, Mirò, Dalì, Tapies, Magritte, and he completes his eclectic juvenile studies by learning about eastern philosophies.
From the mid seventies on, he is one of the young artists who occupies and restores the old pasta factory “Cerere”, in the San Lorenzo neighborhood in Rome, a group of creative artists later well-known under the term “Nuova Scuola Romana” or “Scuola di San. Lorenzo”. In 2005 he was appointed as Director of the Academy of fine arts “Pietro Vannucci” of Perugia, Italy. Nowadays Ceccobelli lives and works in Todi.
The artist took part in numerous exhibitions in Italy and abroad. In 1984, 1986 and 2011 Bruno Ceccobelli exhibited his works at the Venetian Biennale of Contemporary art.
The exhibition is open until the 31st of January, 2016.
