Roberto Bernardi
Italian, b. 1974
Follow

Roberto Bernardi was born in Todi (Italy) on the 18th of May 1974. He started to paint at a very young age and his first works in oils date back to the first half of the eighties. His obsession for detail and learning of pictorial techniques had a significant influence on his artistic formation. Once finished high school he moved to Rome where he worked as a restorer in the church of San Francesco a Ripa. After an initial foray with landscapes and portraits, Bernardi turned towards a kind of realism closely associated to Photorealism (Hyperrealism). In September 1994 Bernardi had his first solo exhibition, obtaining both public recognition and that of the critics. Since then Bernardi has held 12 solo exhibitions worldwide between New York, London, Paris and Detroit and his works have been included in 25 Museum exhibitions and over 100 group exhibitions around the world. In 1999 Bernardi met his partner Raphaella Spence, also a hyperrealist artist, with whom he occasionally creates series of big sized paintings painted together representing social scenes such as crowds at football stadiums, executed with incredible skill and attention to detail. Since 2012 Bernardi has been taking part in an international Museum tour on Hyperrealism which started at the Kunsthalle Tübingen Museum in Germany and has continued with over 13 museum venues worldwide. This traveling show has been on view at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, (Spain), the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, (England), New Orleans Museum Of Art (U.S.A.), Oklahoma City Museum Of Art (U.S.A), Museo De Bellas Artes De Bilbao (Spain), Kunsthal Museum Rotterdam (Netherlands), Tampa Museum Of Art (U.S.A.) and many more. In 2014 Bernardi was invited to the “2014 Contemporary Realism Biennial” which was held at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art (U.S.A.)In 2010, the Italian multinational oil and gas company, ENI, currently Italy's largest industrial company, added Bernardi to the group of young talent from across the world.
