Agostino Bonalumi

Agostino Bonalumi

(Vimercate, 10 July 1935 – Desio, 18 September 2013)

After technical-mechanical studies Bonalumi entered very young the artistic environment of Milan, attending the studio of Enrico Baj where he met Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni and Enrico Castellani.
Recognizing the end of the propulsive drive of informal art, he collaborated with Azimuth magazine, which proposed the total elimination of the previous artistic experience and a new beginning, based on a new pact with social progress.
This new start was made by Manzoni, Castellani and Bonalumi with the use of monochrome canvases (often totally white), extruded with various techniques in order to create lighting effects and changing shadows with the inclination of the light source.
