Artist of the moment………Agostino Bonalumi

 

Agostino Bonalumi was an artist working in a modernist style similar to Lucio Fontana and Paola Scheggi. Agostino Bonalumi was born in Vimercate, Italy in the year 1935. The artist took art classes from a very young age and participated in a gallery show for the first time as a thirteen year old.

Fontana was in important mentor to Bonalumi. Bonalumi hoped to push the boundaries of Fontana’s work even further.

The artist often worked with shaped canvases and also built up his works with vinyl and would paint them with acrylics.

In this clip we view two works by Bonalumi. His work was very large in size. It also helps to see the works from side view rather than just from the front. I enjoy the dimensional feel of his art:

Below a wonderful collection of works by Bonalumi. What a great mix of organic and geometric shapes. When seen together we also get a feel for his outstanding use of color:

The artist had his first solo exhibition in the United States in 1967.

Agostino Bonalumi passed away in 2013 at the age of 78 years old.

Price range information: Works range from $20,000 t0 $400,000.
