Agostino Iacurci was born in Foggia in 1986, lives and works in Rome. In his works of synthetic forms and bright colors, through an essential language, he is capable of driving multiple layers of interpretation. This approach places his tales on the perennial threshold between innocence and artifice, serenity and catastrophe, in a magnetic tension that is the interpretive key to our very existence.
In 2009 he rehalized a 300 meters work for Saba School in Western Saharawi. In 2011 he took part in “Rebibbia on the wall” project, painting, together with the inmates, three huge participative murales, within the courtyard of the maximum security area.
In 2012 realized a large scale mural, on three buildings of the Besançon University Campus, France. In 2013, for the “Fubon Art Foundation” in Taipei, he made an installation on a 21 store high skyscraper and he has been selected to represent Italy at “Le Tour 13” in Paris.
In 2016, together with Italian Cultural Institute in New Delhi and Start India, realized the first, all-over monumental painting, on an Indian Metro Station. His work has been shown in many exhibitions, festivals and projects in Europe, USA, Brazil, Russia, India, Australia, Korea, Japan and Taiwan.
