(Turin 1985) has completed his artistic formation at the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti. Since 2008 participates to some national and international sculpture symposiums, winning awards and competitions and realizing monuments. In 2012 he opened his laboratory, where from marble, material and matrix of his sculptures, brings out everyday objects in a search for perfection formal and conceptual elaboration. The wistful glorification of a beauty appearing in all its popular magnificent decadence, with neither that aesthetic voluptuousness that clouds the mind. In Nazareno Biondo’s hands, marble becomes a reflection about time and concept of abandonment, taking inspiration from products of common use and from consumer icons of our time, subject to their inescapable laws. The sensitivity of an artist is often overwhelmed by everything around him. Vices, consumption and waste of the contemporary society, as well as all the connected problems, are very well reflected in the subjects of NB works. Objects of common use, like cigarette butts or crushed cans, represented in large dimensions, are made timeless by the noble material in which he sculpts them: the Carrara marble. They well represent a collective mood. To feel used, for specific purposes, to be then discarded, abandoned; it is a common feeling in the individuals of our nihilist society.
