Turi Simeti

°1929 in Alcamo (IT) – lives and works in Milan (IT)

Turi Simeti started working as an autodidact in the 1950s. His first artworks consisted of collages of fabric, paper and cardboard, in a serial repetition. In the mid-sixties he moved to Milan where he was part of the legendary 1965 Zero Transavanguardia exhibition at Luciano Fontana’s studio, and became part of the Minimalist movement known as Group Zero.

Turi Simeti is an engineer of light, color, and geometry. His monochrome shaped canvases are examples of pure formalism that helped pioneer the now well-established idea that paintings can be three-dimensional art objects. Subtle and often understated, his oeuvre is always dynamic in its textured surfaces, saturated colors, and masterful shadow work.
