Gianmaria Potenza was born on December 9th, 1936 in Venice, where he still lives and works in the suggestive artists area of San Trovaso.
He studied at the Art Institute of Venice under the guidance of Giorgio Wenter Marini, finishing his studies in 1956. He soon after opened his own studio where he to this day practices different forms of art; from sculpture to painting and mosaic.
1952 saw Potenza’s first official exhibit as he took part in a collective exhibition at the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation, where he also held his first solo exhibit in 1958. As the best student of the Institute, he was invited to exhibit his works at the world renowned Venice Biennale in 1954 and 1956, and thereafter in 1958, 1960, 1966, 1968, 1986, 1995, 2009.
In 1968, together with Ulderico Moretti, Potenza founded "La Murrina" glassware, designing objects and lighting and furniture items. During his years there, he impressed its stylistic figure in the production of glassware, combining the Murano glass art tradition with design. The products of La Murrina are recognizable by all the others and are distinguished immediately for the strong innovation brought to the Murano landscape. less
