Roman born artist Piero Dorazio was classically trained in painting and drawing. Later, he studied architecture at university- which influenced his geometric approach to painting. Dorazio settled on painting and was influenced by futurists painters like Giacomo Balla. He is known for abstract geometric, cross-hatched style brushstrokes. Rich in color, his paintings are detailed and complex, a style that has been described as "post-painterly abstraction". Dorazio created a series of painting in the 1950's. These paintings consisted of thick bands of woven brushstrokes. The style of this series was described as a "visible net". His painting featured elements of density and complexity but also wrestled to bring about luminosity. His artistic presence influenced the beginnings of Russian Suprematism, Constructivism, and notably, Italian Futurism. Among other achievements, Piero Dorazio taught at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design and continued to exhibit until 2003. Piero Dorazio believed that "abstract art could change the world". Less
