Valerio Adami
Italian, b. 1935
Follow

Valerio Adami is internationally recognized for his seductively rich, psychologically complex paintings, through which he wryly examines Western civilization and modern society. He draws heavily upon the visual idioms of Pop Art, with its cartoonish imagery, flatness, and eye-popping colors. Though they lack visual depth, Adami’s works are layered with meanings; he uses potent imagery to symbolize specific themes, painting a lake to represent the subconscious or a woman in a boat to refer to the passage of life.

Sandro Chia
Italian, b. 1946
Follow

Sandro Chia paints in an expressionistic, loosely figurative style emphasizing form and color. Along with Francesco Clemente and Enzo Cucchi, Chia was a central figure in the Italian Transvanguardia movement, a Neo-Expressionist group who sought to re-emphasize color and representation in their work in reaction to the Conceptual Art of the 1980s. He uses vigorous brushstrokes and violent gestures with charcoal and oils, treating his large canvases as vital elements to be worked upon. “My task and my mission […] are to try to reanimate the body of the stretched canvas in front of me, as if it was a symbolic white whale found on a beach,” Chia has said. His subjects range from the everyday to the classical tradition embedded in Italian history.

Mimmo Paladino
Italian, b. 1948
Follow

Mimmo Paladino’s affiliation with the Transavanguardia movement (the Italian version of Neo-Expressionism) arose from his method of borrowing from an array of past artistic traditions and iconographies. Working across two- and three-dimensional mediums, Paladino draws inspiration from both the ancient and the modern, from Egyptian, tribal, and classical images to Modernist painting and sculpture. Paladino’s mastery of the styles of printmaking is illustrated by his many semi-figurative prints depicting a primitive male form with object in hand, such as the “Matematico” series (2001). Rendered in classical materials like bronze and stone, Paladino's sculptures take on traditional sculptural subjects, like horses, birds, and the human figure, but with a graceful elongation.
