Gabriele Meneguzzi was born in San Quirino (Pordenone, Italy) on June 12th, 1949.
After graduating, he worked in the credit division for several years, during which he studied languages, but he was attracted by art, especially drawing and watercolour, which he is taught to use by two teachers. But he is also attracted by the material arts, the three-dimensionality and especially by the natural materials. With Sponga Vincenzo he learns silk-screen techniques and precious metals manufacturing, in particular the silver fusion and repoussage.
After leaving his job, he chose the Swiss school for Artistic Formation and experimentation of natural materials.
Currently he creates using what he finds in the woods, on the rivers and streams. Since 1974 he has been collaborating with Vincenzo Sponga; with him, in 1986 he opened a lab-store in Pordenone (Italy). Since 1999, Gabriele Meneguzzi and Vincenzo Sponga have been practicing Land Art, creating a strong partnership which is highly valued for the materials used for their creations: together, they represent Italy in various events around the world, receiving awards and prizes.
In 2002 he participated in the creation of “Ciamps”, the first Land Art event in Pordenone, with international artists, students of the Acade-my of Venice and some disabled artists.
Later in 2008, with Vincenzo Sponga, he created Humus Park, which has become an important biennial event of Land Art to which foreign, Italian artists, students from two art schools and five fine arts academies are invited.
Currently he is still its artistic curator.
