Cy Twombly (1928) is an American artist will known for his large-scale, freely scribbled, calligraphic-style graffiti paintings, on solid fields of mostly gray, tan or off-white colors. He exhibits his paintings worldwide. Twombly’s painting blurs the line between drawing and painting. Many of his best-known paintings of the 1960s are reminiscent of a school blackboard on which someone ahs practiced cursive “e”s. His paintings of the late 1950s and early 1960s might be renascent of long-term accumulation of bathroom graffiti. Later, many of his paintings and works on paper moved into “romantic symbolism”, and their titles can be interpreted visually through shapes and forms and words. Twombly often quoted the poet Stephane Mallarme, as well as many classical myths and allegories in this works.
