Mimmo Rotella, Italian painter born in Catanzaro, Calabria, on 7th October 1918 and died on 8th January 2006 in Milan. Considered the ‘Italian Andy Warhol’, he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples. In 1945, as soon as the war was over, he moved to Rome, making contact with the avant-garde of his time. In 1949, he invented a novel expression method: a kind of ‘phonetic poetry’ that he called epistaltic and which consisted of mixing words with sounds, beeps and onomatopoeias.

In North America he met artists like Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, Jackson Pollock, Cy Twombly or Yves Klein. He returned to Rome in 1953, turning to the expressive possibilities of advertising posters and he befriended the versatile Luigi Centra. He began to use pieces of broken posters with which he composed a new reality, which he called décollage (as opposed to the collage of Cubist origin). His first décollages were exhibited in the Italian capital in 1955. Known by critics as the poster-tearer, he acquired worldwide fame. He would be Europe's response to American Neo Dada and Pop Art. His works were seen in museums such as the Guggenheim in New York or the Parisian Centre Pompidou.
