Steven Bellosguardo fuses contemporary techniques with a traditional approach to making sculpture. Constructing abstract figures, and creating large-scale installations, he explores ideas of what it is to be human and the reciprocal relationship that we have with nature.
Bellosguardo is a finalist in the Tom Bass Sculpture Prize, NSW (2020), has participated in an international residency and exhibited in New York (2018) and has been awarded the SALA Emerging Artist Prize (2019), and Brighton Sculptures Indoor Sculpture Prize (2019, 2017).
He was recently commissioned by Adelaide Airport to carry out a major public artwork (2019) and has been invited to exhibit in shows at Praxis Artspace, West Gallery – Thebarton, Palmer Sculpture Biennial, Fontanelle Gallery, and the Helpmann Academy Graduate Exhibition.
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.
He lives and works in Adelaide.
