GIBO

GIBO, ANGELO GILBERTO PERLOTTO, WAS BORN IN VICENZA ON 20 AUGUST 1959 AND HE LIVES IN TRISSINO (VICENZA), AT 33 VIA 4 NOVEMBRE, IN ITALY.

HE IS THE FOURTH DESCENDANT OF AN ANCIENT FAMILY OF IRONWORK MASTERS, ACTIVE FOR OVER A CENTURY – THE GREAT-GRANDFATHER ANTONIO LORA WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST ARTISTS OF THE IRON BETWEEN THE EIGHTEENTH AND NINETEENTH CENTURIES – GIBO BEGAN HIS ARTISTIC ACTIVITY IN THE 1980S, UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF HIS FATHER GERMANO, FROM WHOM HE LEARNT THE MAIN METAL WORKING TECHNIQUES. IT WAS ALWAYS IN THAT PERIOD THAT HE ATTENDED COURSES OF DRAWING AND MOULDING IN IMPORTANT ART WORKSHOPS AND THAT HE CHALLENGED HIMSELF IN IRON AND BRONZE WORKING IN VARIOUS FOUNDRIES, WHERE HE EXPERIMENTED WITH LOST-WAX CASTING TECHNIQUES AND PRESERVATIVE FINISHINGS OF THE METALS, REPOUSSAGE AND CHISELLING TECHNIQUES.

GIBO IS CONSIDERED BY CRITICS ONE OF THE GREATEST EXPERTS IN CONTEMPORARY IRONWORK ART. HIS “PURE HYPERREALISM” MARKS A NEW CHAPTER IN ITALIAN VERISMO AND INTERNATIONAL REALISM. FOR FORTY YEARS HE HAS EXHIBITED BOTH IN ITALY AND ABROAD IN SOLO AND GROUP EXHIBITIONS.
