Biography

Arnoldo Pomodoro

 

Arnaldo Pomodoro (b. 1926) is an Italian sculptor born in Morciano, Romagna, Italy. He currently lives and works in Milan. Pomodoro gained renown for his engagement with fundamental geometric shapes, notably the column, cube, pyramid, sphere, and disc through large-scale bronze metal sculpture. His massive architectonic forms suggest a continual process of self-destruction and regeneration. Pomodoro’s work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions at major museums, including Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville in Paris, University Art Museum at University of California in Berkeley, Columbus Museum of Art, Hakone Open Air Museum in Kanagawa, Centre of Arts in Cairo, and Palazzo Magnani in Reggio Emilia. Pomodoro’s sculptures can be seen in public spaces in prime locations all over the world including the Headquarters of the UN in New York, Trinity College in Dublin, The Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, USA, The Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, the Columbus Museum of Art in Columbus and the Tel Aviv University in Israel.
