1941 · Italy
An artist with myriad talents across different realms, Italian innovator Fausta Squatriti remains unfettered by the rules of art and prefers instead to explore her creative urges wherever they might lead.
From art books to collaged compositions to studies in explosive color, Squatriti embodies the avant-garde spirit that drove many of the key inventive figures of the later twentieth century. She has carried that energy into the modern day to create forms as fresh for contemporary audiences as they would have been decades ago.
Born in Italy in 1941, Squatriti has enjoyed a remarkably dynamic career. In addition to her work as an editor of several important art book editions between the 1960s-1980s, Squatriti has also taught extensively as prestigious locales such as the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara and the University of Manoa in Hawaii. Recent showcase of her work include those at the Villa Cernigliaro, Sordevolo, Biella (2013); Library of the Accademia di Brera (2014); and the Nuova Galleria Morone, Milano (2017).
