Mambor Renato

Renato Mambor (Rome, 1936 – 2014), artist among the most representative exponents of the School of Piazza del Popolo, artistic movement born between the late fifties and sixties in Rome, made up of Franco Angeli, Tano Festa, Giosetta Fioroni, Mario Schifano who met at the Caffè Rosati in Piazza del Popolo and at the Galleria della Tartaruga by Plinio De Martiis. Subsequently, other artists joined the initial group of which we remember, in addition to Renato Mambor, Jannis Kounellis, Francesco Lo Savio, Sergio Lombardo, Pino Pascali, Cesare Tacchi. In the mid-sixties, Mambor began working for cinema and theater, temporarily interrupting the painting experience. The theater also involves him as a set designer; in the nineties, after a ten-year break, the artist returns to painting that now becomes more complex able to summarize the aesthetic and research components of the previous theatrical experience. He continued to paint and exhibit until the beginning of December 2014.
