Lisandro Rota was born in Lucca, Italy in 1946. He graduated in accounting. Self-taught, he began his painting career since 1969. He took part in personal and collective exhibitions, awards in various Italian cities and always getting more than flattering acclaim from critics and audiences.
Some of Rota’s work is centered on the female figure. His superabundant women are related to certain characters in films by Fellini for their cutting caricature, so beloved to the Rimini director, with which Rota defines the shapes and psychologies, sharpened with sarcastic and paradoxical underscores. Figures that are exuberant but at the same time light, comical and graceful, they stand out in skilfully constructed and orchestrated compositions, giving life to a harmonious pictorial symphony. In this unusual kaleidoscope where the burlesque and lyrical cues are mixed together, Rota develops his pictorial message, that aims to make the viewer smile, reflect, and be excited, transporting them in a dimension that is playful and at the same time full of symbolic valences.
He always won the 1st prize in Venice and a 2nd prize in Padua in every important artistic event.
