Biography and information

Ruffo Caselli
Lived: 1932 - December 24, 2020.

Ruffo Caselli was born in Florence, Italy. He became famous for his paintings on the theme of cybernetic technologies, which he created from a double point of view, a philosopher and an artist. Caselli was born in the same house where Leonardo da Vinci once worked, and has always felt like the spiritual heir of his predecessor.

Caselli's name has become world famous as the most important name in the art movement of cybernetic existentialism, originally founded in the Soho area of ​​New York.

Intriguing and colorful paintings, with hints of technology and the future, were exhibited at the Spazio Italia gallery by his dear friend and curator Carmen Gallo.

Ruffo Caselli was an instinctively talented artist who explored the evolution of thought, life and human nature in relation to the development of technology. He has always paid great attention to ethical aspects.

Caselli constantly communicated in the circles of artists, in Milan, where he lived for many years. At one such meeting, Ruffo met Lucio Fontana, who inspired him to do experiments such as sawing and gluing sensors and integrated circuits onto canvas, which was in a sense an ode to modern communication.

“Italian artist Ruffo Caselli paints canvases of elegant robots dotted with sensors, sensors and microchips. He is one of the world's leading interpreters of the changes that have taken place in our lives, ”said one of the sources of the art world. “Since the late 1950s, he has linked his themes to modern technology and mutant humanity seeking answers in the technological universe. From the point of view of many, the point of view in his works seems to describe how humans are evolving and preparing to enter alien society while aliens or hybrids arrive on Earth. From transistors to semiconductors to barcodes. Caselli paints canvases with oil paints, where even the space between people is filled with mysterious, omnipotent chips.

Ruffo Caselli's paintings have been exhibited at more than 120 major exhibitions in Italy, the USA, South Korea, the United Arab Emirates and South America, where the artist received many awards for excellence in art. His work will always be highly regarded by the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Cybernetic Existentialism.
