Born in Tuscany (Italy) on 26th April 1972, Riccardo Pocci started off as a painter and an engraver, after his studies in painting at the Fine Arts Academy in Florence and at the Universidad National de la Plata in Buenos Aires. Since 2001, his work has been on view in many solo and group exhibitions both in Italy (Rome, Milan) and abroad (Paris, Zürich, Bern, New York). He constantly attempts to create a dialogue between different visual arts (architecture, photography, drawing) and painting. His art explores the boundaries of visual perception through the use of rough and self-constructed materials as well as the re-interpretation of traditional techniques such as drawing, aereography, gouache and inks. His works are also part of private and corporate banking collections in Italy, Switzerland, Spain, UK, France, Czech Republic, North America and Qatar.
