Giuseppe Amadio is an Italian painter born in Todi in 1944. He is known for his monochrome sculptural paintings, whose single colour surfaces are folded, stretched and curved for a dramatic effect.
After attending schools of art and technique, he enrolled in design and graphic advertising courses, overseeing industrial scale signage. He also alternated his activity as a painter with a role as an interior designer. For over twenty years he worked vigilantly as a study technician for the late artist Piero Dorazio’s studio.
His works draws inspiration from the shaped canvases of Agostino Bonalumi and his background in industrial design and Italian post-war modernism further influence his pieces.
Amadio’s works have been exhibited at the UNIX gallery in Miami, and Wook + Lattuada in Milan, Italy.
