Jannis Kounellis

Greek, Italian, 1936 – 2017. Konnellis was born in Greece and moved to Italy to study painting at the Accademia DI Belle Arti at the age of 20. He was profoundly influenced by Van Gogh's representation of loneliness and agony and by artists who could intuit drama and theatric. His ability to disengage from the linguistic norms and adopting unconventional materials of contemporary art, aided his admission to the Arte Povera movement. It involved artists who spearheaded the shift from work on flat surfaces to installation, inviting viewers to become a part of the canvas. Konnellis's work would often transform the entire gallery into a stage where he could unite real-life and fiction utilizing everyday materials and objects like live birds, gold, ballerinas and violinists. The 12 horses at the Galleria L'attico, inaugurated in 1969, continues to be his most celebrated work.
