DATE OF BIRTH
Guido Bottazzo is an italian designer and artist whose cultural roots are to be found in the world of architecture first, and later in that of transportation design. Back in 2003 he graduates with honour at the IUAV of Venice and after he focuses on industrial design attending ACCD of Pasadena, Los Angeles from 2005 to 2007, with honour grades. Having cooperated with leading companies in the world of design, from transportation design (Fiat, Iveco,Brilliance, Tata, Toyota) to product design (De Longhi, Stiga, Pinarello and many other), Bottazzo has always been researching unique drawing techniques and themes to be explored.
Since 2012 he has been bringing to life a collection of visionary paintings, with his personal philosophy named "The pure eyes of the Child" in which Guido tells stories of an imaginery world, seen from the eyes of the Child living in each of us.
"In my artwork I try to decontextualize products coming from the industrial design world and I force them to tell their own story.
My art is visual, and it clearly has been influenced by all the years that I have been working as an industrial designer, and further developed with the use of my imagination, often contaminated with architecutral elements and some references to American illustrators such as Scott Robertson.
Today my visual work wants to tell the failure of the modern supertechnology era , and the often fake green economy that is basically just a mask behind big money and a new way to contmainate the population and the planet".
