Professional ​

Vincenzo Cohen (birth name, Vincenzo Curcio) is an Italian classically trained nature artist and photographer. He was born in Zurich (Switzerland) and after spending his childhood in Calabria, he moved from South Italy to Rome. In 2002 he graduated in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts and in 2007 he achieved the second master's degree in Archaeology from the "La Sapienza" University in Rome.

Polyhedric artist, his production is the result of a continuous process of historical-scientific research addressed to the representation of cultural content with a naturalistic and social background. He is involved in Wildlife Conservation and he travels through Africa and Midle East to get inspiration for his art production. Much oh his work consists in reworking of life experiences through an expressionist style and by means of photography. His artistic path is divided into three core themes: the historical portrait, the wildilife extinction and the marine nature.
