Salvino Marsura brutalist wall sculpture, Italy circa 1970's
Salvino Marsura is an Italian artist, born in Treviso in 1938, whose career has spanned over 60 years from the 1950’s onwards. The body of his work is comprised of small and large-scale sculpture as well as furniture and architectural elements. Today, as in the past, the work is manual, following in the footsteps of the blacksmith: forge, anvil, hammer, force and wits. Beyond his ability in the craft of metal, the main gift of Marsura is that he gives a soul to lifeless material.
