Mimmo Rotella

(Catanzaro, 7 October 1918 – Milano, 8 January 2006)

Trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples, after a stay in the USA (1952-53) and a series of trials ranging from neoplastic compositions to experiences of phonetic poetry, in 1954 he worked out his first décollages in Rome (torn posters).
He attended, since 1961, the activities of the group of Nouveaux Réalistes, in 1965 he settled in Paris where, for about a decade, he experimented processes of mechanical transcription of the image contributing to the definition of Mec-art. In Italy since 1980 Rotella returned to painting and worked on large acrylics on the theme of cinema or reworking of his décollages.
