Alberto Greco

Alberto Greco (1931-1965) started out as an abstract painter in Argentina. He theorized and pursued what he called an art of the “Vivo Dito” going so far as to write in his Vivo Dito manifesto: "The artist will no longer use the painting to teach people to see, but the finger." He then carried out and documented a number of performances in which he singled out passersby by circling them with chalk and signing the circles to turn them into momentary living sculptures.
