Giuseppe Amadio (Todi, Umbria 1944 - Italy 2016)

About

Giuseppe Amadio is an Italian painter born in Todi in 1944. He is known for his monochrome sculptural paintings, whose single colour surfaces are folded, stretched and curved for a dramatic effect.
After attending schools of art and technique, he enrolled in design and graphic advertising courses, overseeing industrial scale signage. He also alternated his activity as a painter with a role as an interior designer. For over twenty years he worked vigilantly as a study technician for the late artist Piero Dorazio’s studio.
His works draws inspiration from the shaped canvases of Agostino Bonalumi and his background in industrial design and Italian post-war modernism further influence his pieces.
