Nunzio Paci, Bologna 1977 - Lives and works in Italy

My whole work deals with the relationship between man and Nature, in particular with animals and plants. The focus of my observation is body with its mutations. My intention is to explore the infinite possibilities of life, in search of a balance between reality and imagination.

Nunzio Paci is an Italy-based visual artist (b. 1977) working in painting and drawing. He has developed a practice which is concerned with scientific and environmental issues, with particular enphasis on anatomy and the man-nature relationship. His work has been exhibited throughout Europe, the US and Asia and reviewed extensively. Recently, he has been the recipient of the NKD International Artist Residency Program funded by Norwegian Ministry of Culture.
