b. 1973 Caracas, Venezuela
Initially trained as Aeronautical Engineer, Claudio Marcotulli received his B.F.A from Emerson College in Boston and M.F.A from the Miami International University of Art and Design in 2005. Since then, his work has been exhibited internationally and has received support from The Knight Foundation, Live Arts Miami and South Florida PBS.
Claudio Marcotulli uses media, sculpture and performance to create works that investigate his interest in technology and nature by illuminating existential questions around these subjects. His projects range from sculpture and performance installations to film and digital imagery that often reference memory, natural elements and issues of climate change with a surrealistic approach.
Marcotulli also explores principles of aerodynamics that reveal the science and poetry behind the mechanics of flight.
