Mauro Perucchetti was born on 1 January 1949 in Milan, Italy. A pioneer in the field of resin, Mauro incorporates Pop aesthetics and his art demonstrates astonishing technical skill, style and wit. His meticulously-crafted, richly colored works incorporate familiar icons of today’s culture, engaging with themes such as war, cloning, fashion, drugs and the media. Mauro Perucchetti’s unique, eye-catching and highly desirable sculptures bring typical Pop Art themes into the 21st century. Using a range of vibrant, 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 critique, addressing some of the most pressing and difficult issues in today’s society.
Mauro Perucchetti's art takes a critical yet light-hearted approach, relying on symbols to create meaning. He unites Pop aesthetics with social commentaries to address some of the most pressing and difficult issues in today's society, in a way that is subtle and accessible without being trite, shocking or obscure.
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 immense international acclaim in recent years with a range of solo and group shows around the world, including London, Paris, Oslo, Vienna and Miami. Some of Mauro’s significant public installations include his Jelly Babies installation at Marble Arch, London, and prominent placement in front of the Palace du Louvre during FIAC 2012.
