Tristano Di Robilant

(London, 1946)


Tristano di Robilant was born in 1964 in London, England. He grew up in Italy between Rome and Monte Argentario. He graduated from the University of California at Santa Cruz where he followed with particular interest the lectures of Reyner Banham. Working predominantly as a sculptor he has exhibited widely both in Europe and America.

Some of the artist’s initial encounters with sculpting were with his godfather, Cy Twombly, from whom he ‘learned how to pour plaster into hollows dug out from the sand, revealing small sand coated sculptures.’ Over the years, he started experimenting with various materials, including ceramic, bronze, aluminium and Murano glass. Di Robilant is now most recognised for his sculptures in ceramic and glass, but the artist also works in a variety of other media, including drawing, photography and writing.
