  • About the Artist
Giorgio Celiberti was born in Udine in 1929. He started to paint at a very young age and participated at the Biennale of Venice in 1948, when he was only nineteen years old. In Venice he attended the High School of Arts and then in the study of Emilio Vedova. In the lagoon city he shared a ‘study-room’ with Tancredi and he frequented Carlo Ciussi, Marco Fantoni, and Romano Parmeggiani, who lived in Venice, in the same period, a period of apprenticeship. In the early Fifties, Celiberti moved to Paris. Then he began a series of trips that will remain central to his formation: in 1956 he won a scholarship from the Ministry of Education that allowed him to stay in Brussels, where he was able to complete his research on the avant-garde. From 1957 to 1958 he was in London, in the years dominated by the expressionism of Bacon. A tireless traveller, curious, inwardly tormented by a fever of innovation and knowledge, he went on to live in the United States, Mexico, Cuba, and Venezuela. From these experiences he obtained a repertoire of marks and techniques, which he reworked in subsequent years. After returning to Italy, he moved to Rome for a long and fruitful period, where he attended the leading artists of the Italian scene. The return to Udine, in the Mid-Sixties, allowed Celiberti to initiate a process of self-reflection, which is still ongoing and full of creative outcomes, always characterized by that consuming desire for experimentation.
