Remo Salvadori

Remo Salvadori is one of the leading members, along with Enzo Cucchi, of the Italian Transavantgarde movement (essentially Italian neo-expressionists) and experiments in a wide variety of media. He was born in Florence but later settled in and continues to work from Milan. Salvadori has shown widely internationally, including exhibiting in the US, Canada, France, Poland and Japan. His work is held in public collections in Italy, Belgium and elsewhere. He represented Italy at the 1973 Paris Biennale, Documenta 7 in Kassel in 1982 and the Venice Biennale in 1986. One of the more interesting recent exhibitions was his inclusion in the opening show for Tokyo’s prestigious MORI Art Museum October 2003-January 2004. He was included in the Arcadia section of the show ‘Happiness: a survival guide to art and life’ along with Constable, Matisse, Gaugin, Henry Moore and Cy Twombly.
