These are the works of Milan born Matteo Pugliese. The self-taught sculptor has been experimenting and working in his chosen craft since his teens. The style he’s landed upon today is one that fuses his love for modern day inventions like animation and science-fiction films with his culture rooted in the past.
His artworks literally stand out from the wall, casting shadows which highlight their captive/escaping nature while influencing the surface itself. While Pugliese normally displays his works on white walls, many of his patrons choose to place the pieces on walls with texture, color, or sometimes on mirror.
