Artist Bio

Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone is based in New York. Over the past decade he has refined a vocabulary of languid figures, candy-coloured forms and melancholy landscapes. Rondinone’s diverse practice transforms everyday objects and cultural clichés into works that waver between euphoric and depressed states. His installations integrate trademark elements: fuzzy spray-painted target painting, mandala design, fibreglass sculpture, video environments and sounds that he himself has created out of tape-loops.
