  • Matteo Pugliese Information

  • Matteo Pugliese

    One of the main topics of Italian sculptor Matteo Pugliese is the human body in dynamic motion seeming to escape or to rebel. His male characters from the "Extra Moenia" series are modeled as fragments, the individual parts of the body thus create an impression of rising from wall surfaces or disappearing into them. His athletic shaped sculptures are metaphors of human fears and desires. In addition to these bronze sculptures of the series "Extra Moenia" Pugliese is working on guardians of cultures, samurai-inspired representations of so-called "Custodi", as well as on artfully crafted beetles, which are given specially created genus and species names by the artist according to incorporated, small items.
