Enzo Cucchi


    Enzo Cucchi (b. 1949) currently lives and works in Italy. As the central person of the 1980s Italian Neo-Expressionism, Enzo Cucchi was also one of the artists involved in the Transavanguardia movement. His large-scale oil paintings are characterized by their images which are simply or even primitively depicted, and they are often rendered in vivid, dramatic colors. Cucchi’s compositions are infused with violence. His confidence in gesture and colors resulted in the tableaux immediacy and drama in his works.
