Agostino Iacurci (1986, Foggia) is an Italian artist, currently based in Berlin. His practice embraces a range of media including painting, wall-painting, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking. His work is best described as a vocabulary of flat shapes and geometric forms that are blown up to an enormous scale to compose larger-than-life illustrations. He uses an essential language to drive multiple layers of interpretation.
The subjects in his works are mainly characters that in mural form are adapted to the contours of a building’s surface, converting apartments and even prison yards into what is described as pages from a storybook with a whimsical and humoristic setting. The shapes he renders sometimes coalesce into somber characters who appear to express a sense of disillusionment or appear foreboding at times. Iacurci also works in a smaller scale through his drawings and etchings, which apply a more expressive approach to his subjects. His work has been shown in many exhibitions, festivals and projects all over the world, and many have become landmarks for several public and private institutions.
