Peppe Butera was born in Comitini on January 5,1956 into a family of simple origins. He didn’t attend regular studies and soon entered the job world. He started in Belgium, then back to Italy he joined the local post office. In the 90s painting, which had always been in his mind, became his reason of life.
He was helped by an uncle, a well-known photographer, who introduced him to Pierre Restany, theoretician of Nouveau Realisme. It was Mr Restany who supported his first exhibition in Saint Tropez. Since then, many solo end collective exhibitions have taken place in Italy and Europe.
