agostino iacurci



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

His practice embraces a range of media including painting, wall-painting, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking.

Agostino Iacurci’s works are characterized by synthetic forms and bright colours. He uses an essential language to drive multiple layers of interpretation. This approach places his tales on the threshold between innocence and artifice, serenity and catastrophe.

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, Macro Museum 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, NY, 2014; Artmosphere, Urban Art Biennale, Artplay, Moscow.

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;
