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.

    Biography : Born in Nice in 1928, Armand Pierre Fernandez showed a precocious talent for painting and drawing as a child. (Inspired by Vincent van Gogh, he signed his early work with his first name only; he retained a printer’s 1958 misspelling of his name for the rest of his career.) The son of an antiques dealer and amateur cellist, the artist absorbed an intense appreciation for music, the art of collecting and the cultivation of discriminating taste from an early age. After studies at the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Nice, Arman decamped to Paris to study art history at the Ecole du Louvre. His work in these early years focused on abstract paintings inspired by the work of Nicolas de Staël. An avid reader, Arman sought inspiration through books and art reviews, as well as during frequent road trips throughout Europe with his artist friends from Nice, Claude Pascale and Yves Klein.

    Biography : Bernard Aubertin is known for his monochromatic red paintings. For Aubertin, the red paintings create a depersonalized, mediated experience: they symbolize fire and blood, while at the same time allowing him the space for anonymity. A member of the experimental Dusseldorf Zero Group—founded by Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, and Günther Uecker in 1963 —Aubertin reacted against Art Informel and Neo-Expressionism and was interested in developing a new art rooted in international collaborations, concepts, and ideas.

  • Alberto Biasi  (+)

    Biography : Alberto Biasi, the son of Giuseppe Biasi and Silvia Zappi Recordati, was born in Padua on 2 June 1937. His family had already produced an artist, Lavinia Fontana, a well-known name in 17th-century painting, and a poet, Tirsi Leucasio, a founder od the Arcadia academu together with Metastasio. Alberto soon lost his mother during the war and went to live with his paternal grandmother at Carrara San Giorgio, a small village in the country outside Padua, where she ran a tavern. He grew up in contact with the local people in an extended family atmosphere until his return to Padua to attend high school. This was followed by studies at the school od architecture and the advanced course of technical drawing in Venice, where he was awarded a scholarship created by Paolo Venini. These years marked the beginning of a passion for art with close study of the key 20th-century movements. Neoplasticism, Futurism and Dada are deeply rooted in the background of the young Biasi. He started teaching technical drawing and art history in the public school system in 1958 and was assigned a permanent post as teacher of graphic arts applied to advertising, which he held uninterruptedly from 1969 to 1988. His own artistic activity took shape at the same time, and he received the first prize at the 4th Cittadella Youth Biennal from the hands of Virgilio Guidi in 1959, the first public award won by an artist who, though young, was already developinh various stimuli, political ideals and artistic concerns. The Group N was founded in Padua and Biasi, its guiding spirit, worked with it until its definitive dissolution in 1967. His contacts very soon extended to the national and internation level, and he exhibited work in the 1960s with Manzoni and Castellani as well as the European artists of the New Artistic Conception group. Fully involved in the ferment of those innovative years, he joined the Nuove Tendenze movement in 1961 and took part in the founding of the Arte Programmata movement in 196

  • Angelo Brescianini  (+)

    Biography : Angelo Brescianini was born Palazzolo sull'Oglio in 1948, the last of four children. At the age of 12 he participated, with other artists, in his first collective exhibition. He attended schools for mechanical designer. In the late sixties, he made his first bronze sculpture, currently exhibited at the "Enrico Fermi" School Institute in Palazzolo. Also in 1968, he carried out military service in Verona and in his free time he continued to paint. These are the years of his first "shots" on rusty metal plates. He participated in the Biennial of Padua with a painting entitled "Painful waiting" (the title is perhaps related to waiting for the long-awaited leave), with which he received his first recognition. At the end of the military service, he was hired as an employee in a metalworking company, as a cast iron, bronze and aluminum cast operator. In the '70s he interrupted his collaboration with the foundry, deciding to open a workshop for cabinet makers. His father was considered one of the best carpenters in the country and Angelo, since he was a child, has lived the fascination of work on fine woods, breathing and learning its essence. He began designing and producing objects of art with the lathe and other tools, from the late seventies his faithful companions working day and night. In this period he participated in art fairs and collectives. He met the architect Luca Pastorio, son of the painter Ezio, with whom he collaborated on several furniture projects. In these years he became part of the artistic staff of the "Spirale Arte" of Milan. Here he began to design and build wooden objects where precious metal plates, bas-reliefs, plaques of famous authors such as Cassinari, Fiume, Munari, Bonalumi and Kodra are set. Over time he has abandoned the collaboration to devote himself to interior design both as a designer and as a builder He worked day and night and the laboratory became his whole world. The essence of the various woods spreads in the air, the pieces of t

    Biography : Alberto Burri was an Italian painter and sculptor considered a key figure in Post-War art and such artistic movements as Neo-Dada, Nouveau réalisme, postminimalism and Arte Povera. In one of his very rare statements, Burri claimed that the critics’ words, as well as his own, were of no use in offering a description of his artworks, affirming that its only real key strength was the formal balance that poor and industrial materials were surprisingly able to give. Italian, 1915–1995, Città di Castello, Italy, based in Rome, Italy

    Biography : Born in Brescia, born in 1960. He completes his scholastic obligations and works for years, as an accountant, in private studies and companies in Brescia, always cultivating his passion for pictorial art. 1989 will be the year in which, by chance, he discovers the "trompe l'oeil" through furniture magazines. He is fascinated by putting later his artistic skills that are better identified in painting. Soon the hobby turns into real work following the advice and work requests from friends who are in turn fascinated by the growing skill and the particular creative imagination. Sensitivity to the particular is the basic element for the artist's works, which he can see beyond his subject; this can never go unnoticed, involving the user of the work in a deception, given the hyper-reality of his constructions, or stimulating metaphysical sensations to the most attentive and intrigued spectator Beauty animates the forms created by Confortini, an author who succeeds in giving value to that value that overcomes the sense that could justify the work, its meaning, to become, the work itself, the signifier, an absolute autonomous concept valid for the mere fact that it pleases only to see it. The use of color is total and refined at the same time; the balance in the composition refers to experiences of other times, the harmony of the final result is satisfying. The technique used is mainly that of acrylic on canvas or on canvas panels of various sizes. From the ambit of his personal gallery in the center of Brescia and the Brescian salons, the artist has moved, due to the particular preference of light and colors, as well as for a Mediterranean research, in the most unspoiled places of the islands of southern Italy ( Pelagie) where he is following an in depth experience "en plein air" impossible at other latitudes and in keeping with his free and determined spirit that brings us back to the convincing appeal of painters of the past centuries.

    Biography : DADAMAINO Dadamaino (born Eduarda Emilia Maino), a self-taught artist and a member of the Milanese avant-garde, had an incredibly rich and eclectic career. In the late 1950s, she received attention for her series of blackand- white canvases, what she called “Volumes,” that featured large punctured holes, much like Lucio Fontana’s “Buchi” (“Hole”) paintings. At this time, she was a member of Piero Manzoni's Azimuth Gallery in Milan, which was connected with Germany’s Group Zero, the Dutch ,Group Nul and Group Motus in France, though she later went on to join the Nouvelle Tendence movement whose members included , Bruno Munari, Getulio Alviani and Jesus Rafael Soto. In the 1970s, Dadamaino explored Op Art in a series of psychedelic optical paintings, and in the 1980s she developed original alphabet-like signs that she repeated obsessively in small, textlike formats on canvas. One of Italy’s most progressive artists, Dadamaino was twice included in the Venice Biennale. Italian, 1935–2004, Milan, Italy, based in Milan, Italy

    Biography : Jackson Pollock, one of the most influential abstract expressionists, famous for his large ‘drip’ canvases, was born in Wyoming in 1912. Pollock grew up to be rebellious and irascible but at the same time highly introverted; even as a boy, he indulged in risky, self-destructive behavior such as excessive drinking. In 1928, he lived in Los Angeles, where he attended the Manual Arts High School and learned about European modernism. Pollock moved to New York in 1930 to study at the Art Students League with the American scene painter Thomas Hart Benton, whose principles of rhythmical composition influenced Pollock’s mature style. In 1937 the painter and theorist John Graham introduced Pollock to the works of Picasso and the ideas of psychologist Carl Jung. Under the influence of Picasso’s cubist-surrealist paintings and Jung’s concept of the collective unconscious, Pollock began to develop a new pictorial approach. During the 1930s Pollock became involved in the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project (WPA/FAP) as a mural assistant to the Mexican painter David Alfaro Siqueiros. Chronic emotional problems led Pollock to seek psychoanalytic treatment in 1939, the first of many ventures into psychoanalysis. Prior to this, he had met the abstract expressionist painter Lee Krasner, whom he later married. Pollock, at his first one-person exhibition in 1943 at Peggy Guggenheim’s Art of This Century Gallery, New York, impressed critics with the raw painterly quality of his canvases. Soon after, the Museum of Modern Art was the first museum to acquire one of his works. When he left Manhattan for a farmhouse on Long Island in 1945, he also came to a stylistic turning point, as he began executing his highly acclaimed drip paintings (1947–1950). Pollock’s technique of pouring and dribbling paint with brushes and sticks onto large canvases created dynamic pictorial rhythms and energetic curvilinear designs. These paintings were widely publicized and pur

    Biography : Mimmo Rotella, Italian artist (born Oct. 7, 1918, Catanzaro, Italy—died Jan. 8, 2006, Milan, Italy), was best known for his extravagant “double décollages,” which he crafted by ripping posters (particularly movie advertisements) off exterior walls, attaching the fragments to canvases, and then tearing off smaller pieces from the posters to create colourful, often amusing, collages. He was the only Italian artist formally linked to the French Nouveau Réalistes artists, with whom he exhibited in the 1960s. Rotella studied art in Naples and held a Fulbright scholarship (1951–52) at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, where he was admired for his experimental “phonetic” poetry. He returned to Italy in 1953 and abandoned painting for his signature décollages and assemblages, into which he incorporated textiles and other materials. Later he experimented with acrylic paint and photographic elements. Rotella lived in Paris in the 1960s and ’70s, but in 1980 he settled in Milan.

  • Bruno Saba  (+)

    Biography : Born in Rome in 1940, Bruno Saba was trained at the school of Domenico Purificato, Renato Guttuso and Luigi Montanarini. In the mid-1960s, the theater and television set designer experience precedes that of teaching, which turns out to be his true professional vocation. In those years Saba painted with great commitment that in 1960 he presented his first personal in Rome (Galleria Le Jardin des Arts).Since 1965 he has taught artistic education in middle schools, first in the Abruzzi, where the novelty of the single high school stimulates him both in the teaching and in the social sense in contact with a still very rural environment; The landscapes of Fucino and Marsica sediment in its memory and will have decisive part in its painting. The years preceding the controversy are years of social and political turmoil, during which Saba carries out activities of cultural animation rooted in the community of Avezzano, where he mainly operates. The activity of teaching continues from 1974 to Como, where he moved, and where he contacts the Lariani artists. Years in which criticizes the history of 20th-century art (think of Giulio Carlo Argan), and also a Como valorizes the work of abstractists of the 1930s (with Luciano Caramel), some of which are still in business '' Geometric Extractism of Comic Root Painters, Rho, Galli leaves Saba's indifference, which nevertheless will never be aligned on that side. A Como in those years still perceived a fracture between figurative and non-figurative artists, a fracture he had assumed in previous ideological connotations, but Bruno Saba is among those who go beyond. Guttuso's student, in his painting, has never lost contact with reality 'visible, as experience data, without however fall into the trap of the forced "MIMESIS" of "social" realism painting. Rather, many instances of the avant-garde of the twentieth century have paved the way for it to operate on the canvas, without it being possible to label a painting as an expressionist,

    Biography : Paolo Scheggi was a pioneer in the practice of approaching paintings as objects, creating layered monochromatic works that emphasized the picture plane’s physicality over its representational potential. At a young age, his sheet metal assemblages and collages attracted the attention of art critic Germano Celant and artist Lucio Fontana. He later received international acclaim for his “Intersuperfici” and “Strutture Modulari” works, which feature solidly colored canvases or sheets of cardboard dotted with small elliptical apertures. Placed atop one another, each layer exposes the one beneath it. Scheggi’s work has been included in multiple Venice Biennales, both during and immediately after his short life. He was briefly associated with the Nul and Zero groups and the New Tendencies movement, all of which reacted against the dominant postwar expressionist movements.

    Biography : TURI SIMETI A member of the mid-20th-century Minimalist movement known as Group Zero, Turi Simeti is an engineer of light, color, and geometry. His monochrome shaped canvases are examples of pure formalism that helped pioneer the now wellestablished idea that paintings can be three-dimensional art objects. Based in Milan, the still active artist is particularly known for his use of oblong ellipses. Subtle and often understated, his oeuvre is always dynamic in its textured surfaces, saturated colors, and masterful shadow work.
