About the Artist

Mimmo Rotella

Mimmo Rotella was an Italian artist and poet who is best known for collages made from torn advertising posters in a medium that he called "double décollages."

Rotella was born on October 7, 1918, in Catanzaro, Italy, and studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Naples before moving to Rome in 1945. There, he became associated with the Lettrism movement and — along with Raymond Hains, Jacque Villeglé and François Dufrêne — became known as one of "Les Affichistes," an artist group credited as the forefathers of street art.

Rotella's first solo exhibition was held in 1951 in at the Galleria Chiurazzi in Rome, and later that same year, he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship with which he traveled to Kansas City University. In 1961, he was invited by Pierre Restany to join the New Realism movement, whose members included Yves Klein, Arman and Jean Tinguely. In 1964, he represented Italy at the Venice Biennale. He died on January 8, 2006, in Milan, Italy, at the age of 87.
