Bavari was born in 1963 in Latina, a coastal town south of Rome,
Italy where he grew up in an Italian-French family. Attracted
by art at an early age, he attended art college, making photomontages
at the age of 15. He then studied scenography, photography,
and art history among various other disciplines at the Academy
of Fine Arts, in Rome. Here, he developed strong skills in oil
painting, watercolor painting, and engraving, while simultaneously
experimenting with methods of mixing tar, glue, and industrial
paint and exploring photographic printing techniques.
his years at the Academy of Fine Arts, he made many photographs
of life around him: people and animals, objects and architecture,
pictures and landscapes, fossils and other materials. These
images became a part if his mental museum, which is greatly
influenced by Indo-European cultural myths and allegories
as well as the work of fourteenth and fifteenth century artists.
1993, he has added digital manipulation to his repertoire
of image making skills, developing a personal artistic language
using industrial and organic materials then incorporating
photographic processes, computer digitization, which then
leads to "a kind of contamination among the arts dissolving
the boundaries that distinguish them."
Bavari continues to live and work in Italy.
