RIP Renato Mambor

Renato Mambor has died
By: Staff
Rome: Last night Renato Mambor died, one of the protagonists of the research in visual arts since the late 1950s. He had just turned 78 years of age. The Roman artist was traveling companions of Pascali, Ceroli, Schifano, Festa and Kounellis, which was part of what historically has been called the School of People's Square, considered the Italian response, between metaphysics and futurism, the American pop art. The distinctive features of his poetry are silhouettes and street signs, tracings, photo, stamps with men, paintings done with rollers upholstery, which make up its stylized figure of reduction of the icons of mass media culture. He had always accompanied an interest in theater, performance and passion for film, so much so that in the sixties he participated as an interpreter to Federico Fellini's film La Dolce Vita. A spirit of research never vanished for Mambor, much of that has continued to the end his incessant search for expression. His works have been exhibited in major museums around the world. He had also participated in the 46th Venice Biennale, curated by Achille Bonito Oliva.
