Biography

 

 

Stefano Perrone was born in Monza in 1985. After studying Industrial Design at Politecnico in Milan he worked as Art Director in important advertising agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi and McCann Worldgroup. His early works were exhibited in 2013 and consisted in graphic and digital collages.

 

Man is undoubtedly the main focus of Perrone’s artistic research. Face and body changeand transform themselves to find a marginal identity, the evident crisis of contemporary indi-viduals who suffer the growing complexities as wanderers do. However, they do not contemplate the infinite above the sea of fog, like Caspar David Friedrich’s painting, but do feel more and more lost inside tentacular and labyrinthine social structures suffocating any possible impulse.An instable sense of Vertigo which grows, threatening the psychophysical balance, causing an enduring and endless fall, an attracting vortex with no exit or light.

 

Travelling in Europe, from London to Berlin, he gave birth to his first series, the “Faceless Portraits”; Perrone's pictorial language evolved from distorted and emaciated bodies and faces to the current mode, in which geometries, lines and vector graphics create changing entities more similar to heavenly bodies than humans. In 2015 Perrone hold several exhibitions in Japan, Swizzerland and Italy; Melzi Fine Art support let him to his first personal exhibition in Milan in March and to the exhibition in London Stop at nothing in October.
