Biography Luciano Castelli
LUCIANO CASTELLI, born 1951 in Lucern, Switzerland
Luciano Castelli became well known between 1979 and 1983 as a representative member of the Berlin expressive, gestic school of painting, known as the New Wilds. But he had already established an earlier artistic career in Lucern, around Franz Gertsch, and in 1972 he had sculptures in the first "documenta" exhibition there. In addition, his friendship with the Parisian photographer Pierre Mollinier had led to an early encounter with photography.
While sculptures, paintings and large-format drawings soon found their way into international exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Hirshorn Museum in Washington and the Musee de Beaux Arts, Lausanne, for example.
