About Piero Pizzi Cannella

Italian artist and painter Piero Pizzi Cannella is best known for his conceptual works. He experimented with Citazionismo anacronista, an artistic movement known for its quoting of art history. After this period of his career he removed himself from the arts scene, before becoming part of the Nuova Scuola Romana (or “New Roman School”). His figurative works gained attention of dealer Fabio Sargenti and he restarted his career, focusing on the abstraction of the human figure in objects such as tables, chairs, clothes, and personal ornaments—all separated and detached from a real context.
