About the Artist

1961 , United Kingdom

Born in London in 1961, Jonathan Guaitamacchi live and works between Milan, London and Cape Town. With a complex education that involved the study of different artistic disciplines, ha graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, consolidating a suspended equilibrium between architecture and painting. He started the study of spaces architectonic volumes with drawings of monumental figures, visualizing these with sketches and architectonic practice projects for noted studies of architecture and design. As an illustrator and draughtsman, he has collaborated with the Italian newspapers “La Repubblica” and “Il Giornale”, and he developed authoritative commissions of Sacred Art. His true essence was revealed to the public when, in 1997, after a period of study and work which took place on the inside of the Gasometers of Milan (Azienda Municipale del Gas), the “Le Macchine della Luce” project was presented in a solo show at the “Officina della Pressione”. During the same year he was awarded with Suzzara Price and was present at the XIV Quadriennale of Rome. In 2005 he was present at the Beijing Biennale. Known for his global vision, at the base of his artistic search there are the architectures of great cities that become point of departure, trace and subject. These are metropolitan vision in black and white, characterized by a surprising painterly power and by incisive and scratching brushwork. Having done over one hundred shows and many participations in the most important national art fairs, we remember the most recent: Bologna Arte Fiera, Menhir Arte Contemporanea, La Spezia (2014), BritishBlack Galleria G. Biasutti Turin; Galleria Russo, Rome; Locations, SMAC Gallery, Stellenbosh, Cape Town (2009); Linguaggi del mondo, 53th Venice Biennale, Palazzo Querini, Venice (2009); Jonathan Guaitamacchi a Campus Point, Politecnico, Milan (2010); West Lake International Art Festival, Hanzhou, China (2009); New York New York, Galleria Forni, Bologna (2008); Qualcosa di personale – trasformazioni di un secolo breve, Palazzo della Borsa, Sala delle Grida-Genoa (2008); Acquisizione e Esposizione “Collezione Farnesina” Ministero Affari Esteri, Rome (2008).
