Marcello Lo Giudice (b.1957) Marcello Lo Giudice is an Italian artist who lives in Milan, Italy. Marcello Lo Giudice artworks consist primarily of heavily textured and richly pigmented, abstract paintings. Lo Giudice was born in Taormina, Sicily, in 1957. He graduated from the University of Bologna in Italy in 1988 with a degree in Geology. He then attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, where he studied under Emilio Vedova, Giuseppe Santomaso and Virgilio Guidi. Lo Giudice is considered one of the most innovative artists from the second wave of the European Art Informel, a form of Abstract Expressionism pioneered in France in the wake of the Second World War. Marcello Lo Giudice paintings display a sumptuous surface texture achieved through the application of coloured pigment, applied in many layers. The resultant paintings are geological, tactile and imbued with saturated light and a mystical energy. Marcello Lo Giudice exhibitions have been notable. He was selected to represent Italy at the Venice Biennale in 2009 and 2011, and has been featured in numerous exhibitions throughout the world. His works can be found in major public collections and museums including the Zagreb Museum of Contemporary Art in Croatia, the Museum of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Rome in Italy, the John Elkann Collection, the George Segal Collection and the Phillip Morris Collection. In 2016, his work was exhibited in the Ludwig Museum in the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. Marcello Lo Giudice paintings are represented by Opera Gallery worldwide.
