Michelangelo Pistoletto

Biella, 1933

Animating force and a protagonist of Arte Povera, Pistoletto is an artist whose work revolves around the idea of reflection. In fact, an inquiry into self-portraiture characterizes his early work, resulting furtherly into the creation of his famous Mirror Paintings. They directly include the viewer and real time in the work, reversing the Renaissance perspective that had been closed by the twentieth century avant gardes. He has exhibited in the most important museums in the world such as Louvre (Paris), MoMA (New York), Tate (London) among others.
