As a student at Edinburgh College of Art, Patrizio Belcampo drew inspiration from literature, the decorative arts and immersed himself in the history and techniques of printmaking. He graduated in 2011 and started working with us shortly afterwards. Patrizio’s print works sits well within The Red Door’s collection of Illustration prints, but his work also offers the option to wonder deeper into art history and theory. His well respected portrait of “Mary, Queen of Scots” is inspired by scholarly research into her life and times. His wider series of hand pulled screen prints featuring Female British Monarchs, demonstrates his ability to reference and respond to an era so thoroughly that his beguiling images can feel both familiar and truly unique.
Patrizio’s ongoing personal project is an Avian Alphabet, which references the Victorian era fascination with documenting and cataloguing, whilst portraying a sense of depth, texture and movement from a minimal palette. Each of Patrizio’s prints is a master-class in technical skill, composition and precision. Above all, he devotes time and care to every individual edition of a print he produces, meaning you find a little something new each time you look.
Patrizio Belcampo was born in Ravenna, Italy and he has lived and worked in Edinburgh since 2003.
Patrizio exhibits widely including at the Venice Biennale in the World exhibition of 2011, hosted by the Arsenale in Venice and the Italian Cultural Institute in Edinburgh.
