4me4you visits JD Malat Gallery which featured the artist Mimmo Rotella - "The Urban Poet"
Mimmo Rotella is widely regarded as one of the most important post-war European artists. His décollage technique is the ideal illustration of the evolution of Italian art over time and acts as a vital expression of his times. The artist’s strong sensibility enabled him to predict fundamental changes in artistic currents as well as in society, which he then manifested through this technique.
Rotella is known for his elaborate and innovative décollage artworks made from torn advertising posters, as well as rethinking old film posters.
