Bruno Gambone was born in Vietri sul Mare (Salerno, Italy) on October 18, 1936.
He briefly approached the world of ceramics, at the age of 14 in his father's atelier, Guido Gambone.
Towards the end of the fifties, settled in Florence, he collaborated with Andrea D’Arienzo in his atelier. Determined to work and establish himself independently, he also dedicated himself to other artistic experiences such as fabric decoration and painting on canvas. His first exhibition of paintings dates back to 1959 at the Galleria La Strozzina in Florence.
In 1962 he moved to the United States and settled in New York for 5 years.
Here he met artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, making numerous experiences in the field of painting, sculpture, cinema and theater.
After five years he returnd to Italy.
Milan was the city where he chose to live.
There he got aquainted with various artists such as Enrico Castellani, Lucio Fontana, Paolo Scheggi, Agostino Bonalumi and Gianni Colombo.
He then continued his artistic career in some Venetian workshops creating a series of furnishing objects such as lamps and coffee tables and started experimenting with metals and stones, designing juwels, again in Milan in 1968. He returned to jewelry at the end of the 1970s, giving rise to a series dedicated to fantastic animals, taking up patterns already used in his ceramic production.
