Italian painter, sculptor and stage designer. First influenced by Divisionism and Pointilism in his early paintings, Balla joined the Futurists in 1910. His work included analytical studies of speeding cars and abstract sculpture using a variety of materials. In the late 1930s he had distanced himself from the movement and his style remained strongly figurative.
