Mauro Peruchetti’s work is a mixture of Minimalism and Pop, fused together with an elegance and an ironic wit that seem typical of a certain kind of Italian sensibility. The luxury art the artist creates is at the same time simple but surprising.
Mauro matches social critique with Pop aesthetics, and his art demonstrates his astonishing technical skill, style and wit. A Pop Artist for the 21st Century, his meticulously crafted, richly colored works incorporate familiar icons of today’s culture, engaging with themes such as war, cloning, fashion, drugs and the media.
The Swarowski crystals are an unusual material for Perucchetti. What he is really in love with is the glowing transparent resin that is his primary material. A small group of works are abstract, and make no specific moral or political point.
Mauro is a Pop artist for the 21st Century, Mauro Perucchetti addresses pressing societal issues and conveys the pulse of contemporary culture: Barbie, Sex and the City, and the global economy have all found their way into his artwork.

For instance, the birth of Dolly, the first cloned animal, and the ensuing debate over the ethics of cloning, prompted him to create “Jelly Babies”, figurines bearing resemblance to the Pillsbury Doughboy that serve as a metaphor for cloned human beings. Like Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, and Piero Manzoni, whom his work playfully references, Peruchetti uses bright colors, recognizable shapes, and smooth shiny surfaces to entice his viewers.
He sees the bigger picture of world affairs and uses his art to convey the pulse of contemporary society.
