Mario Schifano

(Khoms, 1934 – Rome, 1998)

Canvases with a wrapping paper applied and then painted, the Monochromes, initially dedicated to a single color, are then invaded by the letters and insignia of the city. Mario Schifano will then continue to work on series that he takes up over the years as “Tutte stelle” (All stars), “Albero della Vita” (Tree of Life) “Schermi” (Screens) “Palme” (Palms), “Futurismo revisitato” (Revisited Futurism), these last works were dedicated to the group of artists he admired so much. He used not only painting, but also photography, cinema, television and the Internet in a continuous experimentation of new possibilities that lead him to his very personal style. His interpretation of Pop Art was unique. Maurizio Calvesi, an art historian, called him “one of the greatest of the Italian school of the second half of the century.”
