Press Release

Born in Casalmaggiore, Italy in 1978, Giorgio Tentolini studied graphic arts at the Art Institute Toschi in Parma, and graduated with degrees in design and communication from the Universita di Progetto in Reggio Emilia. Tentolini began his professional career as a photographer, garnering significant awards for his memorable work. Wire mesh is the current medium of his artistic interest for the meditative levity that it puts into the image, pictorial work which crosses the boundaries of reality and sculpture, blending ancient with contemporary. Each of his works are masterfully created in a careful and slow reconstruction that takes place with the study of light and the etching of layers upon layers of wire. The subject of a recent exhibition at the Museo Nazionale Etrusco di Villa Giulia in Rome, Tentolini has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries across Europe, in London, Berlin, Amsterdam, the Principality of Monaco, and throughout Italy. His works are held in the permanent collections of the Museo d’Arte Ravenna and Museo di Salo in Italy and have been exhibited numerous times at the Palazzo Reale in Milan. Giorgio Tentolini lives and works in Casalmaggiore, Reggio Emilia, and Milan.
