About

Paolo Buggiani's "Tuscany, Italian Landscape" is a 24 x 36 inches oval oil painting. It represents the Tuscan countryside, where Buggiani was born and grew up. Colors are bright, with red, orange and blue as the dominant colors. Buggiani used a very special technique, where he mix sand to the paint, giving the work the feeling of a fresco. The artist states "I would like being in my studio with no phone, with perfect light, before a large canvas playing with colors, as if the canvas were a playground. Tuscany is my land and beyond the hills that form a curtain on the horizon, I know there is the sea. Mine are the natural colors of frescoes, and the ideograms that flower from the canvas, the synthesis of my language.” Paolo Buggiani is known for his abstract sculpture and paintings as well as being internationally recognnized for his street and performance art. He was born on the 9th of May 1933 at Castelfiorentino, Florence in the heart of Tuscany. In the early fifties he moved to Rome, where he enriched his study of Contemporary Art. In 1955, when Buggiani was 22, he participated in the national competition: Incontri della Gioventù where he won first place with the painter Romagnoni. Shortly after, he was invited to 1° Salone d'Estate along with thirty-one other artists of the Roman Avantgard including: Accardi Burri, Cagli Capogrossi, Colla Franchina, Mannucci, Mirko Novelli, Perilli, Rotella Tot , Turcato e Uncini. Buggiani was accepted into the group even though the majority of the artists were 20 years older and already well established. In 1956 he had his first one man show at the Schneider gallery of Rome, presented by Corrado Cagli. He arrived in Paris in 1958, where he met Severini, Matta, Victor Brauner, and Vilfredo Lam, who introduced him to the gallery Glasier-Cordiè where he had a one man show. In 1962 he moved to New York. In 1968, following his experiments called the Vacuum Forming System, he received the Guggenheim Fellowship for Sculpture in America, along with Donald Judd, Anthony Smith and Philip Guston. During this period he was also researching the concept of time as it relates to Art. Returning to Italy in May 1968, he was active both in Rome and Milan. Buggiani's work at the time included: "Ephemeral Sculpture in Motion", "Fire" (as Performing Art and Installation), "Paintings over Reality" (landscapes photographed through painted crystal), "Wearable Art" (handpainted jumpsuits). When he returned to New York in 1978, he started his research on Mechanical Reptiles and Urban Mythology. These images placed into the urban environment brought him popularity as one of the most important members of the Street Art Movement, along with Keith Haring, Richard Hambleton, Ken Hiratsuka. Today Buggiani is regarded as one of the most independent contemporary artists and is internationally recognized for his installations of fire sculptures. Since 1979 he has been sharing his time between New York and the medieval town of Isola Farnese, in Rome.
