Bio

BrunoLisi
Bruno Lisi, artist of sign, was the cornerstone of that free exchange of energies, unconditioned by the market and by the more and more constraining pressures burdening the research of contemporary artists, which has characterised to this day the historical space of via Flaminia 58, in Rome, of which he was the president for many years. The association of artists of via Flaminia 58 – AOC F58 – has been for the past twentyfive years a place of experience and artistic research, not only for the many artists and curators who have worked there, but for all those who found in Bruno Lisi’s studio an open and warm place of cultural exchange.

Bruno Lisi was born in Rome in 1942. He studied painting techniques with Alberto Ziveri at Istituto Statale d’Arte in Rome, mosaic with Michelangelo Conte and plastic art with Ettore Colla. He taught at Istituto d’Arte in l’Aquila from 1965 to 1973; at Liceo Artistico in Rome from 1973 to 1982.
 Several critics and curators have written about his work, including Carmine Benincasa, Cecilia Casorati, Patrizia Ferri, Francesco Moschini, Carla Subrizi, Claudia Terenzi, Lorenza Trucchi, Cesare Vivaldi, Marisa Volpi.
He died in Rome in 2012.
