Riccardo Murelli
Ricсardo Murelli

Born 1975 (Rome). Riccardo Murelli is a versatile artist usually working with metal, but in the recent years he started to develop projects in wood, especially in Eastern Europe and Russia. After studying Philosophy, his sculpture career started in 1996 by assisting international artist Beverly Pepper through 2003. Since then his work has explored different techniques, such as sculpture, etching, drawings, as well as alternating single art works with site specific installations.
Based on geometrical shapes, Murelli’s work opens a discourse about the rhythm of human life as an allegory and has focused progressively on the concept of transparency, on the link between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional, on the mega and the micro.
His artistic experience has enabled him to create works of different proportions and various environments, from private to urban spaces.
He currently divides between his studio of Todi in Italy and in Moscow.
