Simone Benedetto

Turin (IT) 1985

The search for one's own being, childhood, and play are the themes that revolve around the artistic production of Turin sculptor Simone Benedetto. His works, the result of careful and precise gestures, present recognizable features at first glance. The image of the child transforming into an animal symbolizes the psychological transformation that occurs in each of us during the development of our personality. Through the millimetre calibration of each gesture, the artist manages to give shape to that sensation of change that each of us has experienced during childhood. His sculptures become a pretext for reflecting on complex and delicate themes, through a new and original perspective. Simone Benedetto, throughout his career, has experimented with different materials (concrete, resin, silicone, and bronze), and precisely because of his great versatility, he is considered one of the most multifaceted sculptors of contemporary art. His great plastic ability combined with an extremely realistic result allows him to address intense and current social issues.

Simone Benedetto was born in Turin in 1985. He graduated with honours from the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Sculpture and Plastic Arts. His works have been exhibited in prestigious venues such as the Domus Lascaris and Palazzo Saluzzo in Turin and have been part of numerous solo and group exhibitions. Additionally, he has participated in important art fairs both in Italy and abroad. He lives and works in Turin.
