Bruno Di Bello was born at Torre del Greco on 10 May 1938.
In 1958, while still attending the art school in Naples (Accademia di Belle Arti di Napoli), he was already exhibiting his works.
With Biasi, Del Pezzo, Fergola, Luca and Persico, he took part in the founding of the “gruppo ‘58”.
His first one-man-show, at Galleria 2000 (Bologna), took place in 1962.
In 1966, he exhibited in Naples at Lucio Amelio’s Modern Art Agency, and began to use photography as a means of artistic expression.
He moved to Milan in 1967. He exhibited for the first time at Toselli in 1969 and, in 1970, a show was hosted by galleria Bertesca in Genoa. He exhibited also at the Venice Biennale.
In 1971, he exhibited at Studio Marconi, to which he returned with exhibitions in 1974, 1976, 1978 and 1981.
Other one-man-shows were hosted by the Art in Progress gallery (Munich, 1974), Kunsthalle (Berne, 1974), I.C.C. (Antwerp, 1975), galleria Plurima (Udine, 1975), and galleria Lucio Amelio (Naples, 1977).
His works have been acquired by the Boymans museum in Rotterdam, the Galleria d’arte contemporanea in Parma, the Rufino Tamayo museum in Mexico City, the museum of Dortmund, and the museum of the reggia di Caserta (royal palace of Caserta). Since the 1990’s he has been engaged in research into the new technologies, with work on the new geometries revealed by computers and digital photography.
He dedicated exhibitions to the results of his research activities at galleria Giò Marconi in 2003, at galleria Plurima in Udine in 2004, and at the foundation, fondazione Morra, in Naples in 2005.
