LUCIO FONTANA,1964, oil on canvas

In conceptual art, the concept is of more importance than the actual execution. Through meditation and movement, Fontana created space on a two-dimensional surface. He made incisions and holes in monochrome canvases. His aggressiveness toward the material was part of his spatial concept, the concetto spaziali. He became the example of nihilism, a revolutionary with a clear language of images. This zero artist shocked the art world but enjoyed an unparalleled, self-obtained freedom following the path of nihilism.
