Bruno Catalano sculptures “before that, I had never felt my separation from myself and my presence in the world.” Albert Camus.
A suitcase, a man. He grasped it and headed for the unknown. In search of freedom and life-oriented voluntary travel to the horizon a person hugs and desires unlimited or forced travel restricted by exoduses and suffering.
The traveler sculptures of Bruno Catalano (Bruno Catalano) is the man left to himself to advance in the infinite of time and space. His house was merely a suitcase, his existence was gradually deprived of everything he considered indispensable, and all of himself had been skillfully built by our society.
The Feedback from Linda who from Canada bought the Bruno Catalano Sculpture for her big house.
He is no longer the man of the world, but the man of the world, he is still full of his culture, but in the face of boundless vulnerability. His mission will not go unharmed. The man departs, destabilizes, deprives him of his place, and goes to his salvation, as he loses.
Now everything will be completely transformed. The traveler fled himself to satisfy his unknown land. As a craftsman sculptor, Bruno Catalano began his career in 1990, as he defined it. The universal theme of travel always inspires it. Since his first clay work, hundreds of travelers have been born from him.
The main motivation for his creation was exile and secession. It expresses the idea of a nomadic man, proud of misfortune and forever seeking a better tomorrow. His people were broken, adversities, carrying suitcases that seemed to contain the world, and his moving characters, holes, affected the beginners at the very beginning. It attempts through this concept to solve today men, regardless of their age, driven by this need to escape, to be persuaded to find happiness that they cannot achieve.
“in my work, I was always looking for sports and emotional expressions, and I became anachronistic and gave them life. I came from Morocco with these suitcases full of memories that I often represented. They contain not only images, but also experiences, desires: my roots in motion. “the artist resume: born in 1960 in Morocco, from a number of regions and the Mediterranean, Bruno Catalano and his family were forced into exile in 1975.
He landed in Marseilles, with the hope of a new life, remembering the pain of uprooting. At 18 he became a sailor and then an electrician, and at 30 he met art and sculpture on clay through artists such as Rodin, Giacometti, and Caesar. He decided to devote himself to it.
In 2005, Paris Gallery painters first noticed at the Contemporary Art Fair that he had developed from clay to bronze and carved out more and more characters, thus achieving important technical strength. Today, Voyageurs is one of the most prestigious private collections and is often the subject of exhibitions around the world.
