Biography

Eugenio Carmi is an Italian painter born in 1920 in Genoa. He studied in Turin in Felice Casorati’s studio. His experience as a graphic designer in the ‘50s, is decisive for his pictorial research, based on a rigorous geometrical structure and on a fine analysis of the perception of colors.

He participated in the Venice Biennale in 1966.

In 1967 he showed some electronic works in the "Superlund" exhibition organized by Pierre Restany in Lund, Sweden.

In 1968, he introduced the “Carm-o-matic”, during the "Cybernetic Serendipity" show at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London.

In 1973, he produced an entirely abstract 25-minute show for RAI’s Experimental Programs Service. The same year, he taught visual art seminars at the Rhode Island Institute of Design in the United States.
In the ‘70s, he gave courses at the Accademia of Macerata and at the Accademia of Ravenna (Italy).

He produced illustrations for three of Umberto Eco’s stories, published in Italy by Bompiani and in many other countries. The French Ministry of Education has selected them for libraries and schools in France.

The most important retrospective of his work was organized by the Milan town hall in 1990, followed by a prestigious exhibition in Budapest, in the halls of the Royal Palace, in 1992.
In 1991 he exhibited at the San Francisco Italian American Museum.

In 1996 the “Carmi” book is published by Umberto Eco and Duncan Macmillan and presented at the Milan Triennial: a synthesis of his life.
