The Turin based artist Rudi Punzo is interested in metamorphosis and its symbiotic relationship with artistic transformation – the transformative act of making art out of discarded, abandoned and cast-off refuse. Similarly Punzo teases music out of his marvelously kinetic art works to produce magical sculptural/aural hybrids – wonderfully ever-changing, renewing and surprising.
Rudi Punzo ( Rovereto 1954 ) lives and works in Torino, Italy.
