Almaviva’s artistic exploration expanded from a reflection on the existence and the drama of life, starting with the violence that dominates in the biological sphere. It is materialized in his first artistic production called Tonaltimbrica.

About

Marco Almaviva was born in Novi Ligure, Italy, in 1934. It was in Milan Brera’s artistic school, where he attended Francesco Messina’s studio and he had been in contact with the artists of the gallery "Il Milione" and with avanguard backgrounds, starting with Lucio Fontana and Giorgio Kaisserlian.

In the beginnings in Milan, Marco was following his father’s footsteeps, sculptor of the early twentieth century.

Almaviva’s artistic exploration expanded from a reflection on the existence and the drama of life, starting with the violence that dominates in the biological sphere. It is materialized in his first artistic production called Tonaltimbrica.

It was in Milan in 1967 when  Almaviva exhibited at Rotonda Besana Palpito Primordial, synthesis of new poetic tonaltimbrica, stylistically characterized by the reduction to the extremes of its two constituent parts: the basic tone, which defines the masses in the background, and the plot of pure colour that structures the painting and gives it aspect of aggressiveness.

In 1969 Almaviva moved to Genoa, the city where in 1971  Tonaltimbrica evolves in Filoplastica, which the sign becomes a filament tenuous that is the basis of a pictorial representation rarefied and suspended.

 The Filoplastica is therefore the outcome of a research that leads to a biological antagonism, global reality as an expression of a primordial substance, crystalline and impalpable.

Almaviva has made more than 50 solo exhibitions in Italy and abroad. He lives in Tuscany, Buggiano.
