Sans titre (2016) is pleased to present « Dizionario delle forme », the first solo exhibition by Ezio Gribaudo with the gallery.


Ezio Gribaudo (b. 1929) is an artist and art publisher who lives and works in Turin. He was trained in graphic arts at the Academy of Brera in Milan, and later at Turin Polytechnic Faculty of Architecture. He embarked on his career as an artist while still working with typography, printing, and publishing. In 1955, Gribaudo started working as a draftsman at the famous Nebiolo foundry, and it was there that he developed his taste for typefaces and printing presses.

Gribaudo’s oeuvre evolved as a whole alongside his role as a publisher and a supporter of the artists of his time. By assimilating into his artistic trajectory the job of art publisher, in which capacity he worked with some of the major figures in modern and contemporary art, Gribaudo developed a series of impactful publishing ideas that influenced his artistic output, part of which was forged in dialogue with different printing machines and mechanisms. He created books for Edizioni d’Arte Fratelli Pozzo, Fabbri Editori, Garzanti, Einaudi, UTET and many others. More than thirty monographs on artists were published under his direction in the series Le Grande Monografie, which he conceived and edited for Fabbri Editori (1966-1990), and which included monographs on such major artists as Karel Appel, Francis Bacon, Alberto Burri, Giorgio de Chirico, Marcel Duchamp, Hans Hartung, Wifredo Lam, Man Ray, Joan Miró, Henry Moore, Antoni Tàpies and many others.

Ezio Gribaudo’s artistic production has been awarded a number of prestigious international prizes, among which, the 9th Rome Quadriennale (1965), as well as the Graphic Arts Prize at the 33rd Venice Biennale (1966) and at the 9th São Paulo Art Biennial (1967). In 2011, he was invited to participate in the Italian Pavilion of the 54th Venice Biennale.
