Marcello Lo Giudice

Marcello Lo Giudice

Italian, b. 1957,

Taormina, Italy.

Marcello Lo Giudice is a contemporary colorist, ceramist, painter, and installation artist who lives and works in Milan, Paris, and Noto. Born in Taormina, Sicily, he attended the Academy of Fine Art in Venice, and studied geology at Bologna University.

While at the academy, he studied under italian artists such as Emilio Vedova, Giuseppe Santomaso and Virgilio Guidi. During his early career in the 1970s, Lo Giudice worked in the conceptual style, using mixed media like wax, strawberries, and smoke. He developed his own style, incorporating his knowledge of geology, creating large organic terrestrial landscape paintings. Lo Giudice is considered one of the most innovative artists in the second wave of the European Art Informel, a form of abstract expressionism pioneered in France following the Second World War. The art of Lo Giudice is rich in textures achieved through the application of coloured pigments in layers. Through these different interplay of textures, pigments and colours, Lo Giudice’s works is a visual and artistic representation of geographical form with a robust tactile quality. He has participated in the Venice Biennale in 2009 and 2011, and has exhibited in numerous exhibitions throughout the world. Lo Giudice works can be found in major public collections and museums including the MoMa, Zagreb; The Museum of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Rome; John Elkann Collection, George Segal Collection, Phillip Morris, Switzerland among many others.
