The founder of spatialism and one of the most prominent figures in the post-war Italian and international scene, Lucio Fontana changed the perspective of art including space and dimension in his unique, unequivocal style. From his punctured sculptural works to the slashed monochromatic canvases, the body of work he produced is one of the most prosperous in the global market scene.
Gio’ Pomodoro was born in 1930 in a small village in central Italy. He was a sculptor, printmaker, and stage designer. After moving to Milan in 1954 he joined the main artists of the avant-garde and started producing jewellery. In the 1960s he started to create his main series of abstract sculptures. Besides his works on commissions, he became known for his large outdoor sculptural works.
He is also brother of the sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro.
Arnaldo Pomodoro was born in 1926 in Morciano, Italy. While he was studying stage design he worked in Pesaro as a consultant and a goldsmith for the restoration of public buildings. His moving to Milan in 1954 has above all been significant for his meeting with personalities like Enrico Baj, Sergio Dangelo, Lucio Fontana.
He exhibited works in numerous famous international venues like São Paulo Bienal (1963), Venice Biennale (1964) and the[one_half][/one_half] Marlborough galleries in New York and Rome. The artist taught at Stanford University and the University of California at Berkeley and later traveled in the United States.
To convey a mechanism of destruction and regeneration, he chooses gigantic architectonic pieces combining the basic geometric shapes such as cubes, spheres, columns, pyramids and discs. The artist currently lives and works in Milan.
