Biography

Paolo Spinoglio was born in Turin, on June the 11, 1956. In his early age, he learns drawing and painting techniques as well as carving and modelling at his father Tullio’s atelier (his father is an excellent painter and watercolorist). At the age of fourteen, he studies drawing techniques with Carlo Giuliano and later carving and sculpture with Riccardo Cordero. After his graduation, he begins a master in architecture and archaeology, but never finishes it. Paolo has a restless personality and prefers to give up his studies and to begin professional sculpture. From the very outset, he chooses terracotta as his preferred material. In 1989 he moves with his family in the Asti countryside, in Mombercelli. His atelier is in Canelli, regione Dota. Paolo liked to designate his works with the expression «my creatures». His work was restless and he did an incredible quantity of sculptures. His style was always transforming and evolving, going toward abstraction. His more mature creation is perhaps the last group of faces: statues smiling without eyes and without gazing. Paolo died in Asti, May the 12, 2012, leaving his heritage to his family, today managed through the Associazione Paolo Spinoglio.
