Enzo Cucchi

Born in: 1949 Italy

Enzo Cucchi

Enzo Cucchi was born in 1949 in Morra d'Alba in Ancona, in Italy.

He grew in Ancona where he used to spend his time observing a painting and book restorer. He then learned how to paint and wined several prizes. At that time, he also showed a great interest to poetry.

During the 70's he often travelled to Rome where he made contacts with the artistic world and met the critic of art and art dealer Mario Diacono that organized his first exhibitions in Italy and in the United States. In 1977, he realized his first personal exhibitions in Rome and Milan. At the end of the 70's, in a world dominated by conceptual art, the very original artworks of Cucchi are distinguishable.

At the beginning of the 80's, with Chia, Clemente, Palatino and others, he initiated a new movement defined by the critic of art Achile Bonito Oliva as "Transvanguardia", Italian synonym for "postmodern". Since then, Cucchi has presented his works of art in personal exhibitions all around the world.

Enzo Cucchi is also a famous designer and graphic designer. Several major museums organized exhibitions dedicated to his graphic artworks. His sculptural artworks are also famos, they can be admired in many public places. On Bruno Bischofberger's initiative in 1982, Enzo Cucchi and the architect Mario Botta realized together in 1994 a chapel on Tamaro Mount near Lugano, in which Cucchi did all the artistic decoration.

The exhibition at the Chenonceau castel showed a part of Enzo Cucchi's new artworks belonging to a group named "Soggetti impossibili" (Impossible subjects). One of the characteristic features of these artworks is the introduction of luminous and colorful elements, made of fibre optics that gives magic to the paintings. All of his new artworks were exhibited at the "Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna" in Rome and in Hamburg in 1999.
The Bruno Bischofberger Gallery in Zurich organized the exhibition of Chenonceau and since 1981 has been regularly exhibiting the artist, and exclusively represents him worldwide.
