UNICUM, at the root of the Latin term, literally means ‘a unique example or specimen of something.’
In his new body of artwork, Perucchetti has manipulated his staple resin material, resulting in new, sculptural ways of displaying his art. These sculptures are individual testaments to the medium from which they are formed – matchless in their chemical composition, form, colour, texture and size. Yet together, they exemplify a serious achievement for the artist, cementing his place within the canon of Contemporary Art.
Alongside his new Abstract forms, Perucchetti has further developed some of his familiar icons, continuing in the vein of his recognised Hip Pop art; a Smoked Skull with a multi-coloured helmet, a Flying Pig with Swarovski crystal wings, a Lucifer Jelly Baby with horns and a tail – icons which are universally understood, but that more importantly make very clear statements about the artist’s point of view regarding highly sensitive issues such as the global economy, environmental neglect and political unrest.
“A celebration of colour, form and technique, elements which are present in all art, UNICUM has a very unique fingerprint.”
