  Biography

 

Vincenzo Cohen (birth name, Vincenzo Curcio) is an Italian classically trained multidisciplinary artist. 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 and in 2007 he achieved the degree in Archaeology from la Sapienza University in Rome. As a polyhedric artist his production is the result of a continuous process of historical-scientific research directed to the representation of cultural and naturalistic content. The artist is involved in Wildlife Conservation and travels to Africa and Midle East to get inspiration for his artistic repertoire. His production ranges from figurative arts to writing and consists in reworking of biographical experiences by exploring different social themes.
