Artist of the moment……Bruno Munari

Bruno Munari was born in 1907 in Milan, Italy. Munari is associated with the abstract and futurist movements. The artist worked in many mediums including painting, sculpture, film, and even poetry. For design the Munari worked with many items designing espresso machines, ashtrays, and even televisions.

Another creative venture for Munari was creating children’s  books. The artist created and illustrated many children’s books over his lifetime. These books were “fun” for kids as  Munari used textures and sometimes kinectic art to get children to touch and interact with his books.

A large influence on Munari was theorist and writer  Filippo Marinetti.

The artist joined the second Futurist movement in Italy, but left this movement because of political dissent of the artist to the Facist movement.
