ANTONIO MIUCCI

Raised in Southern Italy, Antonio Miucci (1994) is an Italian visual artist and fashion photographer based in Milan. His artistic research, influenced by art, fashion and the humanities, deals with the themes of queerness and personal identity, in which he subverts the representation of cultural stereotypes to celebrate self expression, authenticity and beauty in diversity.
In his works, Miucci uses fashion as a medium to create imaginaries deeply inspired by the concept of infinite rebirth and metamorphosis, and by the archetypes of the feminine and the masculine, identified by a sense of delicacy, elegance and mystery. The subjects portrayed celebrate who they want or choose to be with no prejudice and boundless freedom. In front of the camera, a timeless and spaceless aesthetic dimension is born, where the characters give life to their Inner-Self in its most varied and fluid forms of expression, revealed through a profound and personal exchange between the artist and the subject.
