SALVATORE BATTAGLIA

Visit Website

Salvatore Battaglia (b. 1985, Sicily) studied at Liceo Artistico “Diego Bianca Amato” in Cefalù graduating with a diploma in goldsmithing and an art master qualification. His latest collection pays homage to the cultural wonderland of Sicily with inspirations from Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Norman and Spanish heritages.

Sicily has a brilliant mix of the old and new, traditional and unexpected. To celebrate this beauty of his homeland in his works, Salvatore combines traditional Sicilian Majolica techniques with the use of 24k gold features. The Majolica ceramics have survived centuries and the stories they tell remain as vital, unique and vibrant as the hand-painted ornamentations themselves.

Salvatore also addresses current issues to bring more awareness to the ongoing situation in Sicily. Via a collaboration with ADDIOPIZZO, an organisation that fights against mafia in the territory, the artist will donate 10% of his
sales to support its activities.
