Costalonga Franco - 1960

Description
Costalonga Franco - 1960
Acrylic on canvas - Signed - single piece - 1960

Born in Venice in 1933, Franco Costalonga began as a self-taught painter but later attended the local art school and studied painting privately under Remigio Butera. He debuted as an etcher at the LI group exhibition of the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, Venice, and was awarded a prize. Afterwards he devoted himself to painting and made a series of works which reflected his interest in the colour theory.

During the second half of the 1960s, he joined the “Dialettica delle Tendenze” group, founded by Domenico Cara in 1965, and started employing different materials in his works, in the attempt to create original surfaces that could generate three-dimensional forms.
