Fabrizio Bilello (b. 1990) is an Italian artist currently based in Marsala, his Sicilian hometown. He moves to London in 2010 and receives in 2014 a BA in Contemporary Media Practice from the University of Westminster. In 2017 he is admitted to the MFA at KASK, School of Arts Ghent, and graduated in 2019.
His work focuses on the relationship between mankind and the natural world, explores religion and spirituality, yet influenced by a topographic approach.
In his long term projects he adopts a variety of visual languages that challenge the dichotomy between documentary and subjective narration, making his aesthetics a changing adaptation to the subject. The long term dedication allows a deeper understanding of the themes, creating close bonds with his subjects, often leading to a collaborative approach.
