A Matter of Taste

by Samsara

When stumbling upon my fellow Italian, photographer Fulvio Bonavia’s artwork a few weeks ago,  I wondered how I had missed out on such a creative artist. I also thought to myself “here is a two fold post; photography and fashion accessories!”
Author of the book, A Matter of Taste, Fulvio started off as a graphic designer creating movie posters to later follow his true calling: photography. Because every photographer should be a good graphic designer, both skills go hand in hand. Fulvio is outstanding in both professions. Adidas, Heineken, Swatch, Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, Saab and BMW, just to name some of his clients, Fulvio's work is more than edgy and innovative, I would describe it as mind blowing!

A Matter of Taste is a collection of Fulvio Bonavia’s photographs/assemblages of accessories made with food: fruits, vegetables, pasta, fish and candy... He has worked with flowers and other mixed media as well. Does this make him a sculpture too? You can be the judge of that. I'm just happy he is not a designer, so all us fashion enthusiasts won't be going out on a shopping spree -for once-  for an item of his latest collection! Times are tough.
Here is some of his fantastic work.

    You know, I've been looking for a chic helmet to wear while riding a bike this Summer. Perhaps I should DIY a nice topiary one like this :)
