Attardi Ugo – sculptures

Italian painter, sculptor, engraver and writer, Ugo Attardi was born in Sori (Genoa) in 1923 to Sicilian parents. After primary school in Palermo he enrolled at the Art School and in 1945 he moved to Rome where he began to paint. Here, with other young artists, he founded the group Form 1 and is among the signatories of the Manifesto of abstract art. In the 1950s the painter's style evolved towards a realism from strong expressionistic accents to Francis Bacon. In 1956 he dedicated part of his time to engravings and two years later he began collaborating with the political and cultural newspaper Città Aperta. In the 1960s he actively participated in Italian artistic-cultural life as a promoter of the Il Pro e il Contro group, with which he participated in numerous exhibitions in the main capitals around the world. In 1967 he made his debut as a sculptor with the work Donna and managed to finish the autobiographical novel The Wild Heir. A complete artist, he approaches other artistic forms such as the preparation of an album entitled This crazy murderous world which includes 33 drawings, the wooden bas-relief Goodbye Che Guevara and works on large sculptural groups. In the two decades preceding his death (Rome 2006), there were countless exhibitions and awards for his works. His works embellish museums and squares in the main European capitals.
