GIOVANNI FAVA

 

Nato a Polistena, Reggio Calabria, nel 1981

 

Il lavoro di Giovanni Fava nasce inizialmente da una rottura, dalla curiosità di vedere cosa c’è dentro la materia dell’arte, sezionarla per conoscerla, riordinarla o sconvolgerla, per trovare un nuovo equilibrio. L’introduzione della parola diventa figura scritta, immaginazione, racconto, traccia, segno. Giovanni Fava forse scrive per dimenticare più che per ricordare perché spesso le parole provocano distanze, a volte si intersecano, confondono, danneggiano. Mutano al mutare degli eventi, assumono forme e colori differenti. Cambiano suono, diventano musica e frastuono, trasmettono pensieri.

BIOGRAPHY

Giovanni Fava was born in 1981, currently lives and works in Taurianova (RC), where he later finished his studies in accounting. In 1999 he began to frequent the studio of artist Cesare Berlingeri, becoming his assistant. In 2001 he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts of Reggio Calabria, retiring after nearly four years. The decision not to complete the course of painting is given by the need to want to develop, without conditioning of academic virtuosity, an extremely free and personal speech.
