Steven Bellosguardo fuses contemporary techniques with a traditional approach to sculpture’s original subject, the human figure. Utilizing mediums associated with modernist sculpture, figures are rendered from flat sketches on steel, cut out and assembled, creating an interplay between two- and three-dimensional elements. Bellosguardo builds abstract figures that explore ideas of what it is to be human, and the reciprocal relationship humans have with nature.
Bellosguardo was born in 1988 in Adelaide. He apprenticed as a Stonemason (third generation) from 2007 to 2010 and studied at the University of South Australia from 2014 to 2016 receiving a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Sculpture) in 2016.
Bellosguardo lives and works in Adelaide.
