ABOUT THE ARTIST

Andrea Morucchio is an Italian artist and photographer, born in Venice in 1967.
He began his career in photography in 1989 after completing his Political Science degree at the University of Padua.
During the 1990s, he expanded his linguistic research, using multiple media such as sculpture, installation, video, and even digital art, always focusing on sociopolitical considerations.
In 2015 Morucchio created the "Puzzling Classics" series. These are digital artworks where the subjects are masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance and Baroque rebuilt using thousands of tiles. Each tile is a photograph of some details from the floor of the St. Mark’s Basilica.
In 2019 the "Puzzling Pop Project" was also created. The subjects of the series are taken from Pop Art and masterpieces by Andy Warhol. In this case the tiles are macro photographs of butterfly wings from around the world.
His ability to hybridize media and use different languages has allowed him to participate in different exhibitions, both personal and collective, throughout Italy and Europe. His works are exhibited in museums such as the Murano Glass Museum, the Civic Museums of Venice, at the MUPA Landscape Museum in Torre di Mosto, the Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart, Australia. Some works are part of collections such as the Provenance Collection in Tacoma (Washington, USA), the Durjoy Bandladesh Foundation in Dhaka (Bangladesh), the Islington Collection in Hobart (Australia).
