Flavio Favelli (Florence 1967) is an Italian artist currently living and working in Bologna.

His research has been taking shape as an investigation into the flows of existence, as a subjective memory condensed into objects and spaces. The artist creates works using old objects of furniture or common use such as chandeliers, frames, bottles of Fanta or Coca Cola, trinkets that refer to the bourgeois aesthetics of the family environments in which he grew up or with references to the oriental culture deepened during his university studies. His works are collages, sculptures or installations in which these recycled materials are assembled, giving rise to superimpositions of meaning that isolate the object from mere material reality, elevating it to the artistic dimension.
