Pino Pascali was associated with Postminimalism and the Italian Arte Povera movement. He used everyday, natural, and unorthodox materials in his work, including cans, steel wool, hay, and dirt. His "fake sculptures" appear to be solid structures but are actually shaped canvases whose forms suggest animals, plants, and landscapes, as in his 1966 work The Decapitation of Sculpture, which conjures a rhinoceros. He is best known for his "Weapons" series, re-creations of guns and cannons assembled from found materials and painted army green. His Pop art-inspired works were an important contribution to postwar art within his short lifetime.
