The wandering printmaker

  • • Giancarlo's grandfather Ottorino was a printmaker
  • • He has collaborated with Academies of Fine Arts and Italian cultural Institutes
  • • Almost over 1,000 pupils attend his lessons every year

They call Giancarlo Busato “the wandering printmaker” because, in his life, he has spread his knowledge in every part of the world: the Academies of Fine Arts in Warsaw and Zwolle, as well as in the Italian Cultural Institutes in São Paulo, Sydney and Prague. He also spread his know-how at academies in Trujillo in Peru, San Luis Potosí in Mexico and Barboursville in the US. Giancarlo is so in love with his job that he wants everybody to know all its peculiarities. For example, the relationship between the artist and the artisan is very close to his heart. "This is everything to me: I couldn’t exist without an artist and this is the great difference between my craft and other artisans’ work." Passionate, vibrant and communicative, he still has a dream: to find a young and passionate apprentice to whom he can transmit his craft, someone who could continue his tradition.
