Corrado Mancioli, competitive spirit and art
Mastering the airbrush technique, he created a number of advertisement and cinema billboards, as well as postage stamps.
Lucio Scardino claims Mancioli “was first and foremost a sports theme illustrator. For over thirty years, his sketches focused on highlighting competitive sports […]. In terms of style, Mancioli’s compositions floated from an early interest in Cube-Futurism to a typical early 1900s’ style, finally reaching a tasty, post-war ‘realism’” (translated from “Due ruote, cento manifesti. La bicicletta nei cartelloni pubblicitari della Raccolta Salce”, Treviso, 1985).
Here is a selection of his works.
