Mauro’s work unites Pop aesthetics with social comment, addressing 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. Mauro is an artist connected; he sees the bigger picture and world affairs and his finger on the pulse of contemporary society.
Mauro lives in London with his wife PR Director Lorena Perucchetti.

PRESS RELEASE: 2012
What strikes viewers of Mauro Perucchetti unique work is the remarkable eloquence of his artistic language. Each and every one of Perucchetti’s exuberant sculptures exists as a perfectly conceived, meticulously crafted, entity.
Perucchetti’s creative success is born of his ability to combine stories with unique and expertly crafted materials, including pigmented urethane resin, gold leaf, Swarovski crystal and a new medium for him, marble. Working with such exclusive materiality it is unsurprising that technical skill is paramount to Perucchetti: “My medium is technically very challenging; infuriatingly so sometimes, but in an odd way this spurs me on. Creativity has an odd relationship with frustration that, I believe, is why people talk about suffering for their art”. Yet Perucchetti’s technical prowess does not prioritise beauty at the expenses of his stories. In fact, Perucchetti enlivens the duality that exists between subject and object, creating highly accomplished works of art, which balance beauty and intellectual depth.
Perucchetti’s aesthetic recalls Arte Povera, a movement which hybridized the pop and political arts of the 1960’s Italy. Yet his sculptures surpass such previous endeavors. Perucchetti’s re-imagination of traditional Pop Art sensibilities propels his work into this century, making it truly epochal. This artistic approach is intentionally subversive: Perucchetti woos us; the viewer with the beauty of his pieces and then disrupts such pleasurable viewing with a scathing critique of the material desires and apparent needs of modern man.
