Agostino Bonalumi was an artist who belonged to the Italian Abstract Art movement and played an important role in the post-war avant-garde.
In the 60s, his inventive "extroflexions" - relief-printed shapes that spring from the taut canvas - acted as a response to the abstraction of the Art Informel of the 50s.
Born on July 10 1935 in Vimercate, Italy, Bonalumi studied design before presenting his first solo exhibition at the Galleria Totti in Milan in 1956. Bonalumi died on 18 September 2013 in Vimercate, Italy.
The mission at the heart of Theodora is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.
At the Theodora Children’s Charity, we believe that laughter is the best medicine. Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that EVERY sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.
Our Giggle Doctors are professional performers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers). The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops, which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
