Piero Dorazio was an Italian painter born in Rome in 1927. Dorazio studied architecture at the University of Rome and later received a scholarship to study at École des Beaux-Arts for a year in Paris. He is best known for his use of geometric patterns and use of bold colors in his abstract paintings.
