Biography

A sculptor. After studying at the Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti, he moved to Milan in 1936, where he helped to found "Currente" in 1938. After that, he adopted a rough, sculptural artistic language free from twentieth-century-style descriptiveness and monumentality, developing its material sense after the war, until he arrived at informal abstraction. He was a professor at the Accademia Albertina in Turin.
