Marcello Lo Giudice received natural science and art education, which both influenced his development as an artist. He graduated from the University of Bologna with a degree in geology and then attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. His professors were the famous masters of “Arte Informale” - Emilio Vedova and Giuseppe Santomaso. He also considers Lucio Fontana, Jean Dubuffet and Yves Klein, the great masters of the middle of the 20th century, his absentee teachers.
Lo Giudice works with the abstract line and uses special figurative means to represent the geographical forms and processes. Man-made and procedural factors are the core aspects of his art. He manually creates a texture surface, where the form materializes in color and the texture irregularities cast relief and shadows.
His abstract works are metaphoric and become a symbolic analog of the Creation. There are no landscape features in his works and the images rather have a geological and demiurgic sense.
Lo Giudice is working in the formal system of the contemporary art, but still retains a sense of belonging to nature in his creative work, whether it is the geological processes or the impressions of the day.
