Afro Libio Basaldella — Abstract Italian Art

Afro Libio Basaldella (March 4, 1912 – July 24, 1976) was an Italian painter in the post-war period, working together with Alberto Burri and Lucio Fontana, and beginning as a member of the Scuola Romana. He was generally known by the single name Afro.
Born in Udine, Afro first showed his work when he was sixteen, alongside the paintings of his artist brothers, Dino and Mirko (it). Two years later he and Dino won a scholarship to study art in Rome under a stipend from the Marangoni Arts Foundation in Udine.
By 1933 he was exhibiting, along with fellow Friulians Bosisio, Pittino e Taiuti, at the Galleria del Milione in Milan. In 1935 he participated in the Rome Quadriennale art exhibition, and he showed his work several times at the Venice Biennale. Afro followed the School of Rome, creating murals. In 1936, he receives a commission to paint for the Udine opera house. In 1937, collaborating with Corrado Cagli, he works on large murals for the World Exhibition held in Paris.
