Introduction

Robilant+Voena is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Aldo Mondino (1938 - 2005).
The exhibition focuses on his Tappeti stesi (Carpets) from the 1990s and early 2000s. During this period Mondino started to focus on the theme of travel and derived inspiration from Morocco, Turkey, India and the East in general. His paintings are characterized by bright and vibrant colours, drawing upon Middle Eastern traditions. The Tappeti stesi depict overlapping wall compositions in lively colours on eraclit - an industrial material used for construction - and belong to Mondino’s Orientalist period, which critics consider the finest phase of his career.
