PIERGIORGIO DEL BEN



Born in Pordenone, He received in 2009 a diploma in industrial design at the State Institute of Art “Henry
Galvani” Cordenons. In the same year he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice at the faculty
of “Painting”, where he graduated in 2012 with 110/110 and praise. He is currently enrolled in the
Master of “Product Design” Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, Milan. In 2013 he founded his own design
studio “interno99” with Sara Moretto.

His works tell of anguish and loss of contemporary man. Reminiscent of the horror movies masks and popular culture and literature of Pirandello’s works. Each character created by the artisti identifies an individual oppressed by the common life, who loses track of his True Self.
The use of color is intense and symbolic in details and describing the eclipse of individual identity, as in the last works Edward (2011) and Bob (2011), where the blue pigment obscures the face expressions.
