(born 1964 Brunnen, Switzerland)

Since Ugo Rondinone first began exhibiting in the mid-1980s, he has developed a reputation for a diverse practice spanning sculpture, drawing, painting, photography, video, music and installation. Reflecting an interest in blurring the boundaries between fiction and reality, the artist uses techniques such as distortion and repetition to explore the messy complexities of everyday life. Sometimes featuring psychedelic clown sculptures within charged environments, Rondinone uses bold imagery to translate conflicted psychological states, and to provide corresponding moods for the viewer.
