Biography

Furio Torracchi is a graduate Fine and Applied Art Artist and he has been working in several studios in London and Munich for the last 15 Years. Furio Torracchi deeply questions painting and photography and keeps exploring the possibilities of both mediums. Hybridity is a characteristic of his artistic labour informed by academic instruction. The artist’s formal subversion is found in the way he poses contemporary questions as to the lack of purity in the fields of art. Torracchi breaks down photographic codes in an attempt to free the medium from being an allusion to a specific space and time.
