Pordenone, 1926 – Rome, 2015
Luigi Boille was born in April 3rd 1926. He spend his childhood in Venetian, but later he moves to Rome, where in 1949 he graduates in Academy of Fine Arts and in 1950 he graduates in Architecture.
After the degree he make several trips to Europe and in 1951 he settles in Paris, where, from 1953, he devoted himself completely to painting, approaching to the Avant-Garde Movements and, in particular, to the Informal Art.
In Paris the artist get in touch with the critic Michel Tapié, who includes him into the Gallery Stadler circle. The meeting with Tapié will allow Boille to participate to Collective Exhibitions in Japan, organized by the artists group Gutai.
In 1960 he meets Giulio Carlo Argan and thanks to him he will re-establish the relationships with Italy until he get to exhibit, in 1966, to the 33rd International Art Exhibition of Venice.
The countless exhibitions, both the solo and collective ones, his continuous stimulating and original artistic research, they all make Luigi Boille one of the most important painter of the abstract and informal art in Europe.
