Born in Milan, Roberto Bruno graduated from the Milan’s State University with a master’s degree in Modern Literature, with a specialism in History of Arts and Entertainment. He then also undertook a master’s at the Politecnico di Milano in Multimedia Languages and operates as a freelance journalist.
As an artist, Bruno had a fascination with the digital aesthetics of the World Wide Web, and so his works focused on giving life to a surreal language with existential implications that result in estrangement and nonsense. As a result, Bruno has created digital applications for major international and national brands that include Teatro alla Scalla, Feltrinelli, Nike, Prada, miu miu and Toiletpaper.
Roberto’s works trace new perspectives in the world of art. Original and unique, his pieces reflect the artist’s vision and poetic form and content – Life is understood as a form of art and art as a form of life. Roberto’s works deliver a constant dialogue between author and viewer that becomes an integral part of the artistic work, with social and non-self-referential use of technology, with interactivity becoming language and reveal the founding themes of the work and their stylistic codes. In Roberto’s works, the absurd and the nonsense become protagonists of rich staging in a succession of theatre coupes.
All elements of Roberto’s work are beings, bearing an extreme experience from which their deformation and multiplication arise. They are witnesses to a surreal world to which they try to make sense, tearing it apart before escaping into infinity, where even language becomes infinite.
Roberto’s artworks can be placed in any space and used as unique pieces of furniture. These art installations can either be laid or hung on the wall. All technology linked to this piece of art is contained inside the frame, allowing the viewer to interact with the looping layout by touching the screen and tapping on the existing elements.
