Piero Fornasetti is an artist, poet, painter, sculptor, designer and printer from Milan. Piero Fornasetti's unique talent cannot be defined by a single word. His creations, inherited and reinterpreted today by his son Barnaba, are composed of a visual vocabulary recognizable in an instant.
This visionary transformed the decorative arts scene in the 20th century. Revered for his masterful application of two-dimensional art to traditional form. He adapted drawing to objects, furniture, interiors, theater sets, fashion, magazine covers and books, wrapping objects and spaces in illustrations with humor and poetry. Around 1940, after more than a decade of making a name for himself in his Milan studio, Piero's work took on a formative dimension when he met Gio Ponti, a modernist furniture designer who invited him to decorate his bare rooms. They worked together throughout the 1940s and 1950s, Ponti designing cabinets, desks and chairs that Fornasetti then covered with elaborate patterns, creating trompe l'oeil and illusions around their forms.
Classical architecture, contemporary metaphysical and Renaissance painters such as Chirico are an obvious inspiration, but the careful patterns these influences generate and the applications Fornasetti imagines are beyond comprehension.
