Luigi ONTANI (b. 1943)

Luigi Ontani (b. 1943, Vergato, Italy). His famous series of hand-coloured photographic tableaux vivants from the '70s (inspired by a trip to India) represent the artist and other young men, alluding to the creation of a personal, sensual and self-reflective mythology.

 

Recent solo exhibitions include Museo di Capodimonte, Naples (2009) & MoMA PS1, New York (2011).
