Giacometti, the Italian Renaissance artist, is back in the spotlight with his new work in Paris
On Friday, Giacomei, who has also painted works at the Tate Modern in London and the Louvre, will open a new sculpture garden in Paris.
The sculpture garden, which opened last year, is dedicated to Giacomes artist’s “life in a sea of light”.
“I always want to create something beautiful,” Giacomeni said on Friday.
Giacometttis artwork has often been likened to those of Frank Stella, but it has its roots in an Italian Renaissance art tradition dating back to the late 14th century.
Giacomelli was born in Florence and studied at the Palazzo di San Marco, one of Florence’s best-known Renaissance homes, before moving to Milan.
He later moved to Florence to work on his masterpieces, including his masterpiece “The Magic Mirror”, which is still in situ in the Museo delle Scienza.
“My vision is to have this art in the centre of the city, so that visitors will feel the energy of the garden,” Giaombetti said.
“The light is so strong, so strong that you can feel the sun.
We want to show the world the beauty of the light and the energy it brings.”
Giacommetti’s first large-scale sculpture garden at the Louvain Museum of Fine Arts was opened in 2012.
The work, a miniature model of the Renaissance’s “Tristan of Troy” was designed by Italian artist Stefano Giannetti.
