Born In 1958 , Bruno Catalano knew  how to express his talented energy into art since his youth. Autodidact artist but yet very sensible to human being and his causes , Bruno Catalano succeeds to give to his ideas and feeling forms under very original unique sculptures. The Universal theme of travel and unknown destination still inspires Bruno Catalano . If Bruno Catalano's first works are compact and conventional the series which follow does not cease to acquire in expressivity and in finesse. These Astonishing works , with their dashed bodies and the determinated lack of volume , invite the viewer to mentaly reconstitute its limits. Thus , Van Gogh still leaves , his suitcase in his hand , toward the provencial countryside , but it is in a quasi abstract lightness , open to the wind and light. Is it not our destinity that Bruno Catalano looks to turn us to see and to meditate ? As through his statuary Bruno Catalano re enacts the adventure of the human species , as through always between two riverbanks , repelling all borders. When we travel , we leave even unconscionably ,parts of us in the places , our vibrations , sounds , words, don't get lost in the space instead they increase in the place and stay there timelessly. Or it is just the places that are steeling from us our lives and souls parts which still invisible to us. It was quite challenging for Bruno Catalano to elaborate this effect and construct solid and balanced bronze sculptures, but Bruno Catalano succeeded his art and established this new and stunning aspect.
