Emanuel Palermo was born in Catania in 1949, where he began his art studies and later attended the Accademy of fine arts. In 1970 he went to Paris for a year, gaining a tremendous experience in the relation with professional artists. Returning to Italy he has devoted himself to the research and experimentation of visual arts, from 1973 to the present day. His art is sometimes conceptual and the result of a constant social analysis. Being an artist according to Emanuel Palermo means “to confess the unconscious and to look at the world from innumerable hairline cracks”; to do so he realizes installations and performances, he uses mixed techiniques and recycled materials despite the traditional touch of paint. His work has been shown in solo and collective exhibitions in Italy, Spain, England and USA.
