Contenuto della pagina

Cristiano Bianchin was born in Venice in 1963. He attended the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia, where he studied under the direction of the renowned Maestro Emilio Vedova and graduated with a degree in painting in 1987. 
Since 1984, he has exhibited at public institutions and private galleries, and his first personal show was held at the Galleria Bevilacqua La Masa in 1987. 
Bianchin conceives his own artistic language as a reading of experimental poetics involving the possible exchange between the sensuality of seeing and the materials used in art.
His installations in hemp, a material that the artist has used or designed since 1983, but also his drawings, constitute an essential and symptomatic component of the free research developed in the various fields of his visual language. 
His first experiments in glass date from 1992, when he began working with the Murano furnaces, where Bianchin still continues to operate. 
In 1993, he was invited to exhibit two large pieces in hand-made hemp and a large drawing at the Galleria Bevilacqua La Masa, in the ` Deterritoriale' Section of the 45th Venice Biennale of Arts, and in 2009 at the Padiglione VENEZIA, 53th Venice Biennale of Arts, where some of his glass pieces will be part of the exhibition  “…Fa come natura face in foco - Dante”. (But operates as nature doth in fire.., Dante, Divine Comedy, Paradise, Canto IV). In 2011, he was given a solo room at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris on the occasion of the exhibition: “Verre à Venise. 3 artistes, 3 visions - Cristiano Bianchin, Yoichi Ohira, Laura de Santillana”, the travelling exhibition that premiered in New York in 2009 at Barry Friedman Ltd. with the title: “ Venice. 3 Visions in Glass - Cristiano Bianchin, Yoichi Ohira, Laura de Santillana”.  This Venetian artist views his work with glass as having an evolutionary and analytical continuity of his artistic language based on the classical validity of glassworking techniques, which he confronts with the experimentation of new sculptural forms aimed at revealing the more innovative plastic aspects of the vase as a container, together with blown sculpture, and blown glass canopic jars.
His main themes are mainly developed through forms related to the human body, in glass as well as in his use of textile art and  drawings. Cristiano Bianchin lives and works in Venice.
The artist’s glass and textile works were selected for the 17th-18th-20th-22nd-26th-27th-30th -31th  annual competition of the Corning Museum of Glass, New York, and published in the German review Neues Glas/New Glass, New Glass Review edition, in the corresponding years 1995-1997-1999-2001-2005-2006-2008-2009.
