Artist Name

Nicola Cecutti

Born: 1964

Hometown: London

Based in: London

Nicola Cecutti is a lighting and interior designer based in London. A graduate of Istituto Marangoni Milano, he assembles and transforms found objects to give shape to playful and dream-like sculptural pieces.

The process involves constant exploration and experimentation with mixed media, including industrial building materials, to develop textured surfaces that strongly evoke the natural world.

Some of his work resembles sprouting, oneiric plants, others seem to be ancient stones weathered by erosion and decay – all to highlight a connection to nature.
