Giulio Bonatti

It is not difficult to see in my work a trace of nostalgia.

I have always been fascinated by the memory traces that remain on the objects, landscapes, images deteriorated by time, on the symbols.

Born in Florence in 1985, after graduating as a painter at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, I specialized in engraving at the Foundation Il Bisonte.
During my training I worked for months in residence with other artists in the woods of Mount Amiata and in the monastery hermitage of Camaldoli, near Arezzo. These experiences have been very important for my formation and I still see the echo in my works.

I exhibited in various countries, such as Greece, the United States, Great Britain, Italy, China and Japan.

Photopolymer Etching Course

At our latest course, join Helen Ashton as she gives you a beginners guide to Photopolymer Etching. Set over 3 days commencing from the 29th March, this course will give you a valuable insight into all aspects of the practice including; a combination of digital imaging software, UV exposing and traditional etching, as well as being guided through Adobe Photoshop, in order to output and expose A5 digital positives. You will be taught in a low toxic environment allowing you to handle solvents and oil based inks safely.

This specialist course offers a hands on experience of etching photosensitive polymer, a practice which excellently exploits its plates – exhibiting continuous tone, fine detail and rich blacks. This is then added to with the opportunity to develop plates for relief printing, ideal for letterpress and logos.

The course is suitable for beginners and also those with some knowledge of Printmaking that want to expand their practice and incorporate a new skill into their repertoire. You can find out more about the course and book your place here.
