Artist list

Gian Luca Bartellone
Since the early 1920s, the Grassi Museum of contemporary art in Leipzig, Germany, selects craftspeople and artists through an international jury, giving them the opportunity to promote their work at the Grassi Messe arts fair. One of the most important fairs of its kind in Europe, Grassi Messe combines a large variety of crafts and arts, from jewellery to ceramics, from sculpture to glass making, and each year, one artist is awarded Galerie Slavik's Grassi Preis Award for originality and craftsmanship in creating contemporary jewellery. Galerie Slavik is one of Vienna’s best known galleries specialising in contemporary jewellery.

This year’s Slavik Award (2,000 €) went to Gian Luca Bartellone for Bodyfurnitures, a jewellery collection made of papier-mâché, gold and gems. Each piece is unique, created from a variety of wildly different yet closely related elements; geometrical lines merge with the colours of natural gems and enamels, moulded by nature. The additional use of antique fabric and silk lends Bartellone’s products a special flair.

Gian Luca Bartellone’s Bodyfurnitures are currently featured in several art galleries all over Europe. Two pieces were recently added to the Grassi Museum’s vast art collection.
