Prato (IT), 1970
Rudy Pulcinelli is an artist with a unique sensitivity who wants to highlight and emphasize with his works the value of dialogue. By using the symbolism and the letters of the 7 most widespread alphabets in the world, the artist tries to connect the concept of communication with the one of memory which together play an important role in laying the foundations for his sculptural-installation language. Since the beginning he focused his research on materials, experimenting with corten steel, iron, concrete, air chambers and polystyrene. Rudy Pulcinelli was born in 1970 in Prato, Italy.
