(Italy ◊ 1987)
Fabio Petani was born in summer 1987 in Pinerolo. After having obtained the scientific high school degree, he receives an M.A. in Cultural Heritage (Faculty of Humanities) from the University of Turin, with an M.A. thesis on Urban Art and the street culture from the origins to this day. This kind of investigation brings him closer to the art scene of Turin. Soon he becomes part of the cultural association Il Cerchio E Le Gocce.
Strong are the messages of our alchemist Fabio Petani, who mixes chemical and botanical knowledge in an investigating union of the natural essence. Work that winks at the ancient popular wisdom of recognizing plants, but his work is a deeper research, each of his works is a piece of a herbolarium and of the table of elements. Nothing is given to chance, each plant and each element are chemically linked together, this natural and alchemical link between plants and elements develops, because everything is linked to the territory in which the intervention is carried out. Fabio leaves scattered throughout the world reflections aimed at respect for nature and every molecule. The alchemical dichotomy of the universe is represented.
