Antonio Corbo has been born in Campobasso, the city where he leaves and works. Painter and poet, he started to operate during the 60s, and that is the moment that marks his consecration to art. His expressive language is free from the influences of the Post-Avanguardia, an independency that reflects on the contents as well, with a tendency to experimentation and research. In the first phase, he keeps on social and political topics expressed with incisive marks and emotional expressionism.
In contrast, during the 80s and the 90s, he produced landscape and nudes. He refers always to Transavanguardia and Post-Modern. At the beginning of the new Millenium he started to work on abstractions, he is not anymore figurative and start to express reality through new material gestures.
From nature to unknow worlds: the Big Bang and the cosmo are now the centers of is successful path. He started to picture galactic objects and primal life forms and are driving the observers beyond the two dimensions of the artwork. The union of painting and poetry characterizes all his shows from the 00s. His works have been exhibited in the biggest European cities and worldwide. He has participated in many events organized by Italian Cultural Institution. His works can be found in numerous private collectors and museums, both Italian and international. Countless the prizes and the awards he has received during his career.
