Today’s Artist Birthday: Michelangelo Pistoletto

Michelangelo Pistoletto (born 23 June 1933) is an Italian painter, action and object artist, and art theorist. Pistoletto is acknowledged as one of the main representatives of the Italian Arte Povera. His work mainly deals with the subject matter of reflection and the unification of art and everyday life in terms of a Gesamtkunstwerk (translated as an ideal work of art or universal artwork, and is a work of art that makes use of all or many art forms or strives to do so).
