Seems like sculptural figures from the other side of the wall surface in to our reality one body part at the time.
As symbols in agony of struggling emergence, sculptures posses certain poetic grace in their poses enhanced by lighting and shadows.
Artist behind these captivating pieces is self-thought Italian sculptor Matteo Pugliese. Series of sculptures called “Extra Moenia” or “Outside the Walls” Matteo began creating in 1998. Starting from 1st exhibition in 2001 he had to finance himself, currently Matteo Pugliese is one of the sought-after artist with permanent displays in major galleries worldwide.
