Roberto Bernardi - Biography

Roberto Bernardi

Roberto Bernardi was born in Todi (Italy) on the 18th of May 1974.
He started to paint at a very young age and his first works in oils date back to the first half of the eighties. His obsession for detail and learning of pictorial techniques had a significant influence on his artistic formation. Once finished high school he moved to Rome where he worked as a restorer in the church of San Francesco a Ripa. After an initial foray with landscapes and portraits, Bernardi turned towards a kind of realism closely associated to Photorealism (Hyperrealism).
In September 1994 Bernardi had his first solo exhibition, obtaining both public recognition and that of the critics. Since then Bernardi has held 12 solo exhibitions worldwide between New York, London, Paris and Detroit and his works have been included in 25 Museum exhibitions and over 100 group exhibitions around the world.
