Giuseppe Fortunato was born in Notaresco (Te) in 1956. A multifaceted artist, he paints, sculpts,
creates, lends himself to design, he began his artistic career in the early Eighties in Notaresco
in the province of Teramo, his hometown. He meets Remo Brindisi while remaining on different
stylistic expressions, he frequents some Abruzzo artists with whom he founded the Images group in 1985;
in these decades of artistic activity, in addition to the numerous important events, he is particularly
engaged in the search for artistic expression designed to give impact, as well as transcendental reflection.
This is expressed daily on canvas, wood and sculptural material, moreover with evident success
in the performances: among the best known “La crocifissione” Bari 1988, and subsequently “Non tutti siamo polli”
Teramo. Recent is “After the miracle” one of the last public sculptural works: a woman mannequin
in white marble on a steel chair 5 meters high. In the last five years it has successfully addressed
the international audience, with intensity in California, Great Britain and Germany. Over the years
its production has been characterized by various cycles, from the first figurative with a surreal
flavor to the almost abstract “Primavere” of the early nineties. In this period, his production is
characterized by the concept of Assempaforismo (a successful apodictic pictorial assembly) an expression
based on the analysis of the relationship between materials, spaces, colors. In the early 2000s he was
engaged in digital-art of which the “Sarchiaponi” are the highest expression; the stylistic maturation
occurs with the cycle of the “Colate” or pouring of glazes on large flat spaces, an expression that
can be associated with drip-panting. Furthermore, references to Pop art are always traceable in every
period through time.
