Beppe Borella

Beppe Borella (Bergamo in 1972) discovered the constructive properties of iron in his work as a blacksmith.

The encounter with the world of art, however, takes place thanks to the gallery owner Stefano Fumagalli who, sensing his extraordinary abilities, reveals the secrets, beauties and techniques of the great masters of contemporary art.

What attracts him above all are sculptures, which ignite an innate creative as well as technical spark in him. Skills that Borella refined and perfected by collaborating with the great Giuseppe Uncini, in the creation of works in iron and concrete.

It is precisely by working with these materials, like a meeting desired by destiny, that he discovers marble. Its vitality, energy and ability to catapult those who work with it into shapes and surfaces are an irresistible attraction for Beppe Borella.

Once the right material has been found, the artist's manual skill and creativity give life to a series of sinuous, ironic and powerful sculptures.

Creatures with a life of their own that arrived on earth from the immaculate lunar surfaces of which they retain texture, consistency and whiteness.

As in a dance, marble meets Pop Art, emblem of contemporaneity, expressed in its most playful, captivating and refined ideal.

A carousel of mice, arbre magique, tanks, bags full of dollars, pills, skateboards and Lego bricks and many other forms, and icons, of our life is born.

A continually rising artist, Beppe Borella is treated by important galleries in Italy and abroad and has won numerous prestigious awards.
