Pietrasanta, Italy-based artist Massimiliano Pelletti’s work contrasts formal sculpture and iconic forms with modern and naturally-existing elements, bringing a contemporary edge (quite literally in many pieces) to classical technique.

As a child, Pelletti learned the craft of marble work in his grandfather Mario’s family workshop; with this basis in traditional busts and human form, the artist shifts the refined, incorporating new elements, or exposing the natural qualities and inconsistencies of the chosen materials; crystalline edges and rough or porous textures speak an entirely different language than the polished.

Pelleti made his debut in 2006, winning the 12th edition of the Biennial of Young Artists from Mediterranean Europe. Since, he has participated in a succession of Italian and international group shows and solo exhibitions, including the Alexandria Biennale in Egypt and the 54th Venice Biennale (as part of the Italian Pavilion).
