I have verified that the canvas moves better if moved by an oval rather than a circle. The oval exerts its depression gently and is a bit asymmetrical, the oval is sweet, it is a point of excitement of the surface that comes to life and thickness thanks to the light. Light is as important in my work as shadow. Turi Simeti
Turi Simeti has developed a new aesthetic research on the basis of a protruding architectural apparatus, the entrance of one or more elliptical shapes within the composition, and of monochromatic painting. After a short period of youth under the influence of the informal myth, incidentally common to the artists of his generation including Piero Manzoni, already in 1962 he presented the first ovals (cardboard collage on canvas and shortly after canvas on canvas) which soon evolved in the elliptical element which has become its main distinguishing feature
Turi Simeti - Informale (Informal)The Informal was born after the Second World War involving both European and American artists. It can be considered the point of convergence of previous artistic experiences such as Cubism. Expressionism and Surrealism. The name itself shows that informal art is a formless art and therefore stands out from both figurative art and abstract art. In fact, figurative art is based on the representation of what is seen, while abstract art is essentially composed of geometric figures. Informal art to develop a work also uses unusual materials, just think of the jute bags and plastics of Burri or the matches of Aubertin. Informal art is also characterized by the use of forms that have a clear three-dimensionality, typically the works of Bonalumi and Castellani,which allow to play both on their distribution on the canvas floor and on the alternation of lights and shadows depending on the incident light. As mentioned, the Informale was a worldwide movement of which the German naturalized French Hans Hartung, the Swiss Schneider, the Zero Group were part; Pollock and De Kooning in the United States, group GUTAI in Japan with, among others, Shozo Shimamoto and Kazuo Shiraga.

Turi Simeti - Analisi di Mercato
May 2021. After the great binge of the years 2014-2018, during which a canvas of 50x50 cm could cost € 20,000, there was a constant erosion of the quotations of Turi Simeti until the halving of the quotations and with the aggravating circumstance that the demand for marked was non-existent. It is physiological that after a continuous race to the upside at some point prices collapse due to the concomitance of two factors, the saturation of the market and the large amount of works placed therein. Now we are beginning to see signs of a recovery for which prices are rising, recovering about half of the depreciation suffered until a few months ago. Not doubting the good management of Simeti's heritage, we think that in a few years the prices will be restored so this seems to us the time to invest in this artist of national and international fame.
