Run Beyond represents a man as he runs at breakneck speed to jump to incredible heights. The run starts, ends and begins again in a perpetual cycle that alludes to the course of human life. This is an artwork that focuses on the leap that we all must make, sooner or later, to reach freedom. Which freedom that is, Angelo Bonello doesn’t specify, that is up to the spectator to decide. Run Beyond, then, is about the power of imagination; a force so strong that it allows individuals to overcome their fears and limitations so that they can open themselves up to other cultures, new friendships and unknown worlds.

Angelo Bonello (b. 1971) is an Italian artist whose visual capacity and stylistic approach is based on the dimensional distortion of scenic space and landscape. Bonello was exposed to art at a young age. As a child he was taught how to paint and create sculptures by his teacher, the Impressionist artist Sergio Manfredi.
In 1998, Bonello founded his company Kitonb together with Alberta Nunziante, which began as an extreme theater company experimenting in aerial dance and performance, and is now focused on devising and producing spectacular shows. To date, Bonello has created and directed more than 150 shows and artistic events in 300 cities worldwide.
