Stefano Arienti is one of the most renowned artists of the Italian scene. In the 80s he was in contact with the most idiosyncratic fringes of Italian avantgarde, and he still surprises art audiences with the variety of his work.

He is a professor at the IUAV University of Venice and the Academy of Fine Arts in Bergamo, and his work is present in the most important Italian museums as well as in the U.S. and England.

“I work on objects that already exist; they carry images that are part of the visual culture of our time, and are made of very specific materials that can be transformed to provide a more personal vision. Therefore, as an artist my work deals with transformation, offering my own take on objects to find a personal path within contemporary imagination.”
