bio

Nicola Pucci, after completing school, attended a four - year course in Advertising
Illustration at the European Institute of Design (IED) in Rome.
He then a period spent in the region of Vipiteno, drawing the exercise book
covers for the famous italian company Pigna, before moving to Rome in order to
devote himself to painting.
Since 1995 to the current period, his art works have been exhibited in Italy, United
Kingdom and the United States.
Over the years, Nicola Pucci's style, has caught the attention of personalities from
the art world such as the gallery owner Larry Gagosian and the art critics Philippe
Daverio, Gianluca Marziani and Vittorio Sgarbi, who have become passionate supporters
and collectors of his creations.

Pucci boasts a masterly technique with which he builds his images layer-by-layer with
dozens of brush strokes and shadows. Paying remarkable attention to detail, he reworks
his canvases multiple times over years until faithfully rendering his unique vision of reality.
For Pucci, the process of careful observation results in a new interpretation of reality
in which the impossible and possible are merged. He combines elements from different
sources within a single painting. His canvases depict homogeneous groups of figures, often
suspended in space but united in a silent dialogue, a particular gesture that speaks for itself.
Dreamlike, theatrical and haunting, Pucci's works are ascribed with an invisible,
cathartic energy that is clearly perceivable by our senses. While drawing upon various
influences including Surrealism and the art of Francis Bacon, Nicola Pucci nonetheless
stands apart from defined contemporary trends or movements.
