About me

Guglielmo Maggini was born in Rome in 1992. His practice takes place at the border between sculpture and installation. Maggini’s forms merge  with irony different materials in an organic proliferation of elements and gestures. After graduating in architecture in Rome at Università degli studi di Roma Tre he moved to London where he attended the master in Visual Arts at UAL - Camberwell college of Arts.

Consequently, he moved to New York where he started working as Gaetano Pesce’ assistant. This professional collaboration inspired Maggini greatly, brining into his practice new materials and new experimentations that come with them.

In an imaginary place where space is considered to be a plastic volume, the artist aims to investigate the psychological perception of time in a constant liquid overlap amidst classical heritage, natural world and references to the Pop culture.
