Alighiero Boetti

(Turin, 16 December 1940 – Rome, 24 April 1994)

After school education, Boetti chose to create a self-taught culture both in literature and in painting. He approached the world of galleries learning from the works of Fontana, Gorky, Michaux, Twombly.
From 1970 he began working on the theme of seriality and splitting. In 1973 and 1974, he had his first two solo exhibitions in New York.
His artistic production continues with complex systems of signs that are repeated, alternated and interlocked.
Also in the eighties and nineties, for the artist's production, were based on the principle that in art one can use everything without hierarchies, by virtue of an eclecticism of techniques and materials that offers a vision of the world under the most different points of view.
In the last years of his work, Boetti became interested in Byzantine, Arabic and Japanese art.
