Mauro Perucchetti Creates “Modern Heroes” after Famous Sculptures

Italian artist Mauro Perucchetti is recognizable for his eye-catching colored resin figures. Among these, one series, in particular, stands out for its stark contemporary twist on well-known sculptures. Perucchetti explains his “Modern Heroes” series as classic-pop, fiberglass re-imaginings of works by master artists like Michelangelo and Auguste Rodin.

In his statement, Peruchetti writes that he:
“Unites Pop aesthetics with a social comment to address some of the most pressing and challenging concerns in today’s society in a way that is crafty and available, without being stereotyped, shocking or mysterious.”
