Diego Perrone

Diego Perrone was born in Asti in 1970. He lives and works between Milan and Asti.

Diego Perrone’s universal vision and poetics are deeply rooted in the particular mysterious allure of provincial and suburban lives. Rural life and daunting, foggy landscapes where, in between the hills, are small brutalist villas, the artist’s epicentre of all neurosis. Perrone challenges these psychotic, but apparently flawless, existences by tiptoeing in and out of a surreal daze inhabited by agricultural machinery, fish, and uncanny shapes.

Diego Perrone’s work has been included in the 53rd Biennale di Venezia, a cura di Massimiliano Gioni - Il Palazzo Enciclopedico, Venice (2013).
