Mario Schifano

Mario Schifano

(Homs, Libia, 20 September 1934 – Rome, 26 January 1998)

Artist, painter and Italian director, together with Franco Angeli and Tano Festa represented a fundamental point of Italian and European Pop Art.
Perfectly inserted into the international cultural scene of the sixties, he was considered a prolific, exuberant and lover of worldliness.
His works, often developed in cycles, used materials (emulsified canvases, paper, plexiglass, etc.) and different techniques (photoimpressions, collages, etc.) while maintaining a constant interest in filmic language.
From the eighties he returned to painting with large paintings of bright and brilliant colours.
