Alessandro Agudio

(b. 1982, Milan)


Agudio’s art works epitomize the transition from the scenario in which objects are enfranchised as merely utilitarian things, to their typifying a specific social group and so a lifestyle. Hence, in his practice design can be understood as a device for commenting on the ethos of the Italian middle-class. Indeed, the surface is the issue here, and plastic laminate is the medium. His work has been showed in: Quadriennale (Rome), Art Berlin Contemporary (Berlin), American Medium (New York), Galerie Chez Valentin (Paris), 1m3 (Lausanne), Fluxia, Marsèlleria, Unicredits Studios, Gasconade, Plus Design, GAM (Milan), Galleria Vistamare – Benedetta Spalletti (Pescara). Lives and works in Milan.
