Pino Pinelli (1938)
Pino Pinelli was born in Catania, where he had his first artistic training.
In the sixties he moved to Milan, attracted by the cultural and artistic debate that included figures such as Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni, Enrico Castellani, Agostino Bonalumi, Dadamaino, Giovanni Colombo and Turi Simeti.
In the seventies Pinelli began his research on the essence of painting through the attention to the surface and the materials: he created Monocromi and Tipologie series, which made him one of the leading artists of the Analytical Painting movement.
From 1975 he started reducing the size of his works, gradually braking with the idea of art as a painted surface: an encreasing distance characterized as an affirmation of painting.
Pino Pinelli's work is an important part of the historical, artistic and cultural context of the seventies.
