Italian artist Mauro Perucchetti is instantly recognizable for his eye catching colored resin figures. Among these, one series in particular stands out for its stark contemporary twist on well known sculptures. Perucchetti describes his "Modern Heroes" series as classic-pop, fiberglass re-imaginaings of works by master artists like Michaelangelo and Auguste Rodin. In his statement, Peruchetti writes that he "unites Pop aesthetics with social comment to address some of the most pressing and difficult issues in today’s society in a way that is subtle and accessible, without being trite, shocking or obscure." Since May of this year, "Modern Heroes" has been featured at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles.
