While I did study art history, I had never heard of the cutting-edge artist Lucio Fontana until today. I had to write a short summary on the current exhibition “Lucio Fontana, Retrospective”.

His father was an Argentinian sculptor and Lucio spent most of his time in Italy where he created his art works. Slashing the canvas, Lucio Fontana replaced the palette knife with a box cutter. His unconventional use of materials gave him the reputation as a genius. I love his bold colours and how the cut canvas takes on a life of its own.

Now I know what to do with my old canvases!
