Artist Mimmo Rotella

Mimmo Rotella, (1918 – 2006) was an Italian artist and poet best known for his works of décollage and psychogeographics, made from torn advertising posters. Up until around 1958, Rotella’s medium choice lent itself to Dadaist collage: by reapplying posters right side or wrong side up to the canvas, the poster is worked over again (new lacerations) so as to obtain an abstract pictorial composition.
