PATRIZIO BELCAMPO (b. 1979, Ravenna) Painter and Printmaker

Artist’s Statement

My work is always a dialogue with the manmade. 
Be it a text, an image or an artistic tradition, it is about re-visiting, re-interpreting and re-presenting some of the places, figures and ideas found in human culture. 
These I believe can be made to resonate again and again by means of a free, intimate re-creation, one that is not constrained by concerns of universality and philological exactitude.
As I plunder my cultural heritage, I favour a lively inaccuracy of approach as a way of generating new traditions by distortion and proposing symbols whose meaning is hybrid, open, non-prescriptive.


I was born in Ravenna, in North-Eastern Italy, in 1979.
I studied English Literature at the University of Bologna.
In 2003 I moved to Edinburgh, where I became a member of Edinburgh Printmakers in 2005 and a Drawing and Painting student at Edinburgh College of Art in 2007.
