Renzo Nucara pittore

Renzo Nucara, born in Crema in 1955, is a well-known Italian artist who has been able to distinguish himself with a unique and innovative artistic language. He grew up in Bergamo, where he attended art school. Already in 1970 he practiced watercolor painting, creating surreal landscapes and developing what would become his artistic language. In 1973, after graduating, he enrolled at the Brera Academy in Milan. Here he comes into contact with the works of Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri and American Pop Art , which exert a significant influence on his artistic career. He began his career by painting oil paintings, then, under the guidance of the artist Mario Benedetti, he experimented with new techniques and materials, such as acrylic colors and collages.
Renzo Nucara inaugurated his first solo exhibition in 1977 at the Galleria Ticino in Milan, exhibiting works that reflect his interest in a new form of artistic communication. In the 1980s, the artist concentrated on the theme of the diary. Emotions, sensations, daily events are brought onto the canvas, often through backwards or fragmented sentences, in a constant tension between the revealed and the hidden.
Subsequently, Nucara's art undergoes a notable evolution: writing becomes a sign, two-dimensionality leaves room for three-dimensionality, and the use of materials expands to include wood, recycled objects and transparent films. This is how the Memory Boxes were born, creations in which the artist combines the playful and the ironic.
In 1993, Renzo Nucara founded, together with five other artists, the Cracking Art Group . Plastic becomes the main material, becoming a symbol of their social and ecological commitment. With the group he participates in the 49th Venice Biennale with the installation SOS World: more than a thousand turtles made of recycled and golden plastic invade the gardens around the historic pavilions. He returned to the Biennale with the group in 2011 and 2013.
In the 1990s, Renzo Nucara created the Reperti , two-dimensional works that refer to the idea of ​​an object corroded by time. These works, initially created with papier-mâché and foam rubber, are then made of plastic material enriched with layers of colour, granules, pigments and natural elements.
In parallel to his work in the Cracking Art Group, Renzo Nucara continues his individual artistic research. In the early 2000s, he began working on Resinfilm , compositions that combine resins, pigments, natural and artificial objects, transforming the exhibition space into a landscape. His path continues with projects such as Arbre Magique, created together with his wife Carla Volpati, and Time Machine, and in 2013 Stratofilm was born, a work composed by methacrylate frames layered with natural elements and everyday objects.
More recently, Renzo Nucara has begun to create NFT (non-fungible token) works, entering the world of Cryptoart and confirming his continuous search for new forms of artistic expression. Renzo Nucara stands out not only for his versatility and creativity, but also for his social and environmental commitment, making him a leading figure in the panorama of Italian contemporary art.
