Nuclear Art

The nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was the beginning of a new art form: nuclear. In 1950, Italian artists Enrico Bai and Sergio Dangelo organized the exhibition “Nuclear Painting” at the San Fedele Gallery in Milan, and in February 1952 in Brussels, they officially presented the “Technical Manifesto of Nuclear Painting”.

Although this art form was most common in Italy, it was approached by artists from different countries: in Spain it was Salvador Dali, Bernard Lord in France, Hans Grundig in Germany, Andy Warhol in the United States.
