Mauro Perucchetti’s exhibition ‘Apopalyptic’ engages in themes such as war, cloning, police brutality, fashion, addictive consumerism, drugs and media.

Mario creates objects of consumerism through sculpture. To achieve his bright, fluid designs, he works with processes that are technically and chemically hazardous. Thus, ‘Apopalyptic’ is the result of “intensely difficult, dangerous and time consuming craft.”

Colors favored by the artist include lime, lemon, strawberry and orange. ‘Apopalyptic’ is a statement about contemporary consumerism, writen in the form of a love letter to the viewer in the language of form and color, yet bearing uncomfortable truths.
