plastician designer

Born in Verona (Italy) in 1947, Pucci de Rossi has been living and working in Paris since 1979.
After training with the American sculptor H.B. Walker, he began his artistic career in 1971. He is a sculptor of ideas, forms and materials, which he cleverly transmutes into everyday objects, with imagination and humour.
Often purely formal in appearance, his creations are flecked with irony and play on sidetracking and offsets; they are also perfectly functional and useful objects. He describes himself as a ‘phony designer’, alternating the functional with sculpture to sidestep the debate that arose in the 90s (and is still going strong) between art and design.
After researching different formal solutions using varied techniques and materials, his most recent works take into account certain social realities. But Pucci di Rossi refuses the role of the ‘political’ artist, the ‘sociologist’ or the ‘scientist’, What he is involved in doing is to enrich his work using the aesthetic criteria proper to his Italian background.
