Biography

Italy, b.1949
Mauro Perucchetti’s unique, eye-catching and highly desirable sculptures bring typical Pop Art themes into the twenty first century. Using a range of brightly colored, unusual and highly finished materials such as pigmented resin, polished stainless steel, glass, granite, Swarovski crystals and gold leaf, Perucchetti fuses Pop aesthetics with social comment, addressing some of the most pressing and difficult issues in today’s society. Above all, Perucchetti is an artist who is connected; he sees the bigger picture of world affairs and uses his art to convey the pulse of contemporary society.

Perucchetti is based in London and lives with his wife PR Director, Lorena Perucchetti. Mauro has achieved international acclaim in recent years with a range of solo and group shows across Europe. Mauro’s most recent public installation was in front of the Louvre at Palace du Louvre during FIAC 2012 with an installation of four monumental sculptures.
