Baj, Enrico (Italian painter, sculptor, and printmaker, 1924-2003)

Note: Baj studied painting and law in Milan at the Accademia di Brera, 1945-1948. In 1951, he co-founded the movimento d’arte nucleare with Sergio Dangelo and Gianni Bertini to promote a style of gestural painting relevant to the post-War nuclear age. Baj and other Arte nucleare artists joined the Mouvement International pour une Bauhaus Imaginiste (MIBI) founded by Asger Jorn in 1955. At the same time he began producing collage and assemblage works. Baj's critical political engagement became more explicit from the 1970s on.
