Ugo Rondinone | Phaidon

Regular price $56.00

I've loved this artist's work since first seeing it in the flesh some decades ago - brilliantly designed to evokes the artist and his work, the book is fantastic. 

Swiss-born, New York-based artist Ugo Rondinone has made a name for himself as one of the most prolific, versatile, and exciting artists of the last three decades through his distinct body of work: vibrant paintings, immersive installations, sculptures, and text-based works, all united by a poetic quality and an enduring preoccupation with such universal themes as time and cosmic cycles.

Profoundly interested in the contemplation of everyday life, Rondinone reconciles the visual language of psychedelia and advertising with meditative, intimate reflections on personal and collective experiences. This definitive monograph brings fresh perspective to his remarkable life and career and is a must-have for his huge global following.
