Born in 1977 in Italy. Lives and works in Lecco.

Giovanni De Lazzari’s works result from his close observation of reality and conceal a dense overlapping of memories and reminiscences. His is a quest that has to do with the primitive nature of the artistic process. “My subjects often treat of partial slavery; constraints that allude to conditions of limited liberty,” explains the artist. Animals and nature are recurrent in De Lazzari’s works and an opportunity to reflect on another ‘nature’, the human. He reflects on the dynamics involving people, their emotional relationships and the inevitable power relations established between them.
