A painter and illustrator. After his technical studies he came into contact with Futurism in Gorizia. At the International Exposition of the Decorative Arts in Paris (1925) he exhibited his geometrical-abstract works. He moved to Turin in 1928, where he worked as a graphic designer and illustrator, attracting the esteem of Persico, Venturi and Chessa with his lively flowing style, which recalled Matisse. After the war he adopted a personal form of gestural, vitalistic expressionism that became more and more abstract, and ultimately informal.
