Based in Heidelberg, Germany, Giuseppe Blasotta was born in Foggia, Italy in 1972.
"With my work I did not try to imitate products of nature, but to act like the producing nature itself, by creating new forms from the given materials. Like natural objects, my depictions of flowers and landscapes do not need any translation or explanations, but at the same time every work by an author refers to the story of the author himself. These roots in the author's history are, so to speak, the second nature of the work of art. The content that is expressed in an otherwise lifeless object can be of the most varied types, but it always refers to its human origin and thus concerns us all. The unity of the work and the processes of creativity of art don’t come from the materials of the work, but from its history."
