Maurizio Cattelan


Maurizio Cattelan (b. 1960) is an Italian artist. Known primarily for his hyperrealistic sculptures and installations, Cattelan's practice also includes curating and publishing. His satirical approach to art has resulted in him being frequently labelled as a joker or prankster of the art world.

Nothing is sacred to Maurizio Cattelan, who has been variously amusing and horrifying viewers since the early 1990s. A prolific curator and writer outside of his artistic practice, Cattelan is seen by many as one of Duchamp’s greatest contemporary heirs, enacting morbidly humorous transformations on objects and history alike.
