Griffa Giorgio






Giorgio Griffa was born in Turin in 1936; he started to paint as a child under the guidance of traditional painters In 1958 he graduated in law and started to work as a lawyer In 1960, feeling the need for a new period of artistic training, he enrolled in the private school of Filippo Scroppo, a Torinese abstract artist who had been a member of the Movimento per l’ arte concreta (MAC) For three years he attended the lessons, although the works he produced  in  this period were all in figurative style In the following years he proceeded to progressively reduce the representative elements, without adopting a truly  abstract  style, until  he  produced  his first nonrepresentational works, the cycle entitled Quasi dipinto In this cycle he made the choice of unfinishedness that was to become a constant feature of his work
