Agostino Iacurci (1986) is an Italian-born, Berlin-based artist.

His practice embraces a wide range of media including painting, mural, sculpture, drawing, and installation.  Iacurci’s works are defined by clear compositions and bright colours, blurring the boundaries of figuration and abstraction. Primarily interested in everyday objects, his clean language conveys multiple layers of interpretation. Iacurci combines his artworks with scenographic spaces, to overcome the limits of painting and thus transform the perception of a given environment. 

His work has been shown in many exhibitions, festivals and projects in Europe, USA, Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Australia, Korea, Japan and Taiwan. Recent exhibitions include: Urban Art Biennale 2017, Völkinger Hütte, European Centre for Art and Industrial Culture, Germany; Cross the streets, Museo Macro Roma, 2017; FADA, House of Madness, The Watermill Center, New York, 2016; 16° Premio Cairo, Palazzo della Permanente, Milano, 2016; Codici sorgenti, Palazzo Platamone, Catania, 2015; From Street to Art, Italian Cultural Institute of New York, Artmosphere, Urban art Biennale, Moscow, 2014.

Moreover, his works have become landmarks for several public and private institutions such as: Yakutsk Biennale, Yakutia, 2017, BBDO headquarter, Southbank, London, 2017; Distrito Tec University, Monterrey, 2016; Govind Puri Metro Station, New Delhi, 2016; Istituto Mario Penna, Belo Horizonte, Brazil; Puerto Rico's Stadium, Puerto Rico, 2015; “Le Tour 13”, Paris 2014; Besançon University Campus, Besançon, 2013; “Fubon Art Foundation”, Taipei, 2012; Saba School in Western Saharawi, 2011;
