Born in Udine on June 19, 1973, his research is expressed through sculpture and drawing. He looks for new forms elaborating the archaic systems of the working of materials such as marble, bronze and iron.
Dormino entrusts all his artistic research to the monumentality of the executive process: in every work of his there is a research of sense through the reference to unavoidable themes for Man.
He dialogues with dimension, working at every scale that is able to represent the idea and insert it in the appropriate container. For Dormino every artistic manifestation becomes fertile ground through which to relate to the external environment in an exclusive and incisive way. Flows, vectors, bridges, small and large works, materials transformed without artifice but adapted to the will to interpret the spirit of the timeless artist.
He has created works of public art in Italy and abroad, in 2011 "Breath" the Monument to Haiti made a year after the earthquake disaster, commissioned by the United Nations.
