Hugo Rocci (Avignon, FR 1989) lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam.
Rocci’s practise spans diverse media, including painting, ceramic and installation. He draws inspiration from everyday objects and spaces, abstracting them in a way that seems both familiar and enigmatic. Simultaneously, his work investigates the connection and contradiction between image, language, symbol and social space.
