The CAFA Art Museum presents an exhibition of the famous Italian sculptor Bruno Valpot “Meetings without sound". In his work, he combines 400 years of wood carving experience with the methods and forms of modern sculpture. Often fragments of his works are painted in muted colors. The author uses this coloring to refer to clothes, hair, and sometimes skin. The sculptor seeks to capture an isolated and introspective moment.
Bruno Valpot was born in the north of Italy. At the age of 14, he began working as an apprentice in a well-known local woodcarving workshop. Later he was accepted to the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, Germany, and studied with the German sculptor Hans Landen. The author took part in numerous solo and museum exhibitions. In 2015, he participated in the project “Personal Structures - Border Crossing”, held together with the 56th Venice Biennale.
