Franco Costalonga - Destrutturazione

Description
Franco Costalonga - Destrutturazione
Acrylic on canvas - Hand signed - 1999

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 engraver and etcher and was awarded a prize at the LI group exhibition of Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa. Afterwards, he devoted himself to painting and made a series of works which reflected his research on 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.
