Claudio Olivieri was born in Rome in 1934. He is an analytical artist. His first personal work was in il Salone Annunciata di Milano in 1960. He participated in the Biennali in Venice in the 1966 and in the 1986 collectives, and went on to gain his own personal space in 1980 and 1990. In 1971 he participated in the Documenta 6exhibition in Kassel. The research of Claudio Olivieri is focused on light, as artistic poetry, coherence, continuality and simplicity. He uses intense light which emerges from two coloured sections between the spectator and the light. The canvas represents the passage between the visible and invisible. Claudio Olivieri celebrates colour itself, creating a spiritual universe, a suspended and metaphysical space. He lives and works in Milan where, until 2011, he was a professor at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera.
