Italian painter, sculptor and printmaker Mimmo Paladino (born 1948) attended the Liceo Artistico di Benevento. He moved to Milan in the 1970s and became associated with the ‘Transavanguardia' group of painters. Paladino’s figurative drawings, paintings and sculptural works combine elements of classical mythology, Christianity, and primitive and modern art, to reflect on the nature of faith, death and ritual. Paladino exhibited extensively from the 1980s. A major exhibition of his paintings and sculpture was held at IMMA in 1993. His work is represented in significant public collections worldwide.
To ensure the health and safety of the public, IMMA’s galleries will be closed from the evening of Friday 18 September until Saturday 10 October 2020. The grounds of IMMA and the RHK will remain open. Thank you for your cooperation.
