Giacomo Rizzo


Sicilian artist, born in Palermo in 1977, Professor of Sculpture and Foundry at the Academy of Fine Arts in Palermo. He lives between Palermo, Cordoba, his poetics are configured as a continuous aesthetic and linguistic research through direct contact with nature and its territory which becomes for the artist a place of the soul. From the encounter with the natural space he draws strong sensations and suggestions which, together with a careful analysis of contemporary society, send clear and precise messages on the relationship between man and the environment through sculpture.
