agostino iacurci

Info

 

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

His practice embrace a wide range of media: painting, wall-painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking.

In his works of synthetic forms and bright colors, through an essential language, he is capable of driving multiple layers of interpretation. This approach places his tales on the perennial threshold between innocence and artifice, serenity and catastrophe.

His works have become landmarks for several public and private institutions such as: Yakutsk Biennale, Yakutia, 2017; BBDO headquarter, London, 2017; Distrito Tec University, Monterrey, 2016; Govind Puri Metro Station, New Dehli, 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, Western Saharawi, 2011;  

His work has been shown in numerous exhibitions, festivals and projects in Europe, USA, Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Australia, Korea, Japan and Taiwan. Recent group exhibitions includes: 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.
