David Gill Gallery presents a curated selection of works by Paris-based artist and designer, Mattia Bonetti as part of LDF 2021.
Mattia Bonetti's work has been called whimsical, surreal and unique. Consistently merging the boundaries between art and design, Bonetti, who was born in Lugano, Switzerland studied textile design at the Centro Scolastico per l’Industria Artistica. Bonetti’s work has always begun with a free-hand sketch, which is then fabricated in a range of materials including bronze, stainless steel, acrylic and rock crystal. Consistently working with many of the same craftsmen and ateliers since the beginning of his career, Bonetti’s work exploits the most luxurious of materials but also pushes technological boundaries, using the most contemporary skills available including 3D printing, modern acrylics and robotics. Every Mattia Bonetti piece comes entirely from his personality - he does not follow trends and or styles or even collections, he continues to create individual pieces that continue to blend the fantastical with the imaginative, the inventive with the artistic. A true trailblazer for contemporary avant-garde design. On view are important works by the artist from 2004 – 2020, a new collection by Mattia Bonetti: New Works will be launched at David Gill Gallery in 2022.
