Emilio Isgró's Biography
Emilio Isgrò (born in 1937) is an Italian artist whose work focuses on the erasure of texts and images as a means of expression and commentary. He developed the technique of "erasing" as a form of poetry, which involves writing and then erasing words and images onto paper. His works are often symbolic, using language to explore the fragility of existence and the passing of time. He has exhibited widely in Europe, the United States, and Asia. He has also published several artist's books and has been the subject of numerous retrospectives.
