The light of Venice

Davide Battistin

Graduating in 1998 from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia – with a thesis on Guglielmo Ciardi – in the same year he won a scholarship from the School of Fine Arts in Athens. The following summer, he took part in the IV International Seminar on Contemporary Art in Ryn, Poland. Some restoration experiences of the 1990s, including in the Sala del Maggior Consiglio in the Doge’s Palace, led him to a direct and tangible reflection on the technique of poetry, which he has taught since 2004 at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica di Venezia. He had his first personal show in 2001 at the Pelar gallery on Long Island, New York, followed by an exhibition at the Palazzo dei Prigioni Nuovi in ​​Venice. Since 2003 he is among the artists invited by the W.H. Patterson Gallery in London for the Venice in Peril initiative. His studio was located for years on the last floor of Palazzo Papadopoli on the Grand Canal, and is today in a fascinating attic in the Cannaregio district.
