He was always up to date with international contemporary art (such as the Cobra group and the European informal) and was also interested in the Mexican mural painting of José Clemente Orozco, beginning to feel strong expressionist accents in his production, and then, from the end from the 50s and early 60s, with surrealist influences, populating his painting with graphic signs and sometimes creating phytomorphic and zoomorphic images.

Additional Information

Artist: Bepi Romagnoni (1930-1964)

Born in Milan in 1930, Bepi Romagnoni is considered one of the exponents of Italian existential realism. He began his painting studies in the early 1950s by enrolling in the evening school of the Brera Academy. Here he met for the first time some of the painters of the so-called existential realism such as Mino Ceretti, Giuseppe Guerreschi, Giuseppe Martinelli and Tino Vaglieri, who were inspired by the philosophy of Kierkegaard, Camus, Sartre, authors who had attracted Romagnoni's interest in years of early youth. Romagnoni's first solo show was at the Schettini Gallery in Milan. From 1957 to 1960 he approaches informal art. In 1963 one of his works was exhibited at the Contemporary Italian Paintings exhibition, set up in some Australian cities. The following year he died prematurely due to an underwater fishing accident in Capo Carbonara.

Age: Contemporary

It is difficult to define what Contemporary Art is, because it does not correspond to a time period or to a unique and specific artistic current. According to the subdivision of art into historical periods, the period of Contemporary Art would begin in 1789, at the end of Modern Art, and with the introduction to that century, the nineteenth, which sees the appearance of a new and revolutionary, Photography, and that begins to search for a different way of looking at reality and representing it, in particular with Impressionism, which chooses to mediate the vision of reality with the filter of feelings that it evokes. On the other hand, the whole twentieth century is permeated by the rise of numerous pictorial currents, which try to interpret the demands of the present using new means of production and adapting to the times and ways of life and which filter reality through feelings, intimist visions. , metaphysical interpretations, generating different multiple pictorial currents. Therefore, many believe that contemporary art is that mode of artistic expression that tends to involve new means of expression that range from performance, photography, installation, video, digital processing, to text, thus starting from some currents. avant-garde of the twentieth century and reaching up to the present day. But be careful: to date, in any century, a wide representation of artists has never disappeared in artistic pictorial production who have chosen to remain faithful to the most traditional pictorial technique, as well as to the representation of reality in the most consistent and objective way possible, which therefore can be considered Contemporary only in a more temporal sense, that is because they lived in the last decades of the current historical period.
