Giacomo Bevanati is an Italian wire artist based in London.
Bachelor in Product Design and a Master’s degree in Architecture provided Giacomo with all the technical aspects of the use of strengths, understanding of materials and 3D modelling.
Once he acquired the technical knowledge and the conviction of creating art and not buildings, the media chosen was the step to follow. He started as autodidact creating a net of sewed steel and brass wire with specific random patrons, whose strength is a reinforcement guarantee what allows to create shapes and curvatures what lead into final art pieces. His idea to use a cheap material in order to create something precious determined his artistic career.
During the last 5 years, Giacomo Bevanati’s creations range from sculptures to wearable art pieces where costumes and masks interacts with performances, fashion and art exhibitions.
His artworks were shown in different important exhibitions, including the Tate Modern for “Tasty and Smelly” exhibition (London,2017), the Venice Biennale during “Anima Mundi Festival” (Venice,2017) and the “Asia Contemporary Art Show” (Hong Kong,2018).
His work is also the core of “Metal Love” documentary, presented at the East End Film Festival 2018 in London.
