Angelo Bellobono was born in Nettuno (Rome) in 1964. He lives and works in Rome.
Bellobono paints atmospheres and suspended stories that investigate the relationship between anthropology, geology, identity and borders. Ice and mountains are matters of his work. The ice represents a memory archive of the planet, while the mountains are seen as connecting bridges. He has made several interdisciplinary projects in which art, sport and biosustainability become instruments of social connectivity.
He participated in the XV Quadriennale of Rome, IV and V Marrakech Biennial.
He has been included in the Grand tour d’Italie by Mibact. He won the Celeste Prize for Painting and the Artslant Drawing award. He was invited to the Martedì Critici, Tedx talk and to various residency programs such as Bocs Cosenza, Landina Omegna, Lac or Le Mon San Cesario.
