Bio: (Source: Brun Fine Art)

Oscar Piattella was born in Pesaro in 1932. Taking inspiration from artists such as Jean Dubuffet, Georges Mathieu, Alberto Burri and Edgardo Manucci, Piattella uses materials that are far removed from painterly tradition. He elaborates on an own abstract visual language that considers the visions of nature and the outcomes of pictorial thinking that are characteristic for his world.

While in Milan in the 1950’s, Piattella entered a vibrant international artistic circle with artists such as Piero Dorazio, Enrico Castellani, Piero Cascella, Lucio Fontana and Tancredi Leonardi. The artist then participated in several great exhibitions. His work became widely acclaimed and appears in public and private collections in Italy and abroad.

His earliest works are from the 1950’s and focus on the wall as a theme.

Starting from the wall as a man-made reality, it recalls the wall’s political functions and the use of the wall to suppress freedom in the twentieth century. To Piattella the wall was, however, also a doorway to an inner dimension, shaping the space and depths of the mind.
