Paolo Scirpa was born in Syracuse, Sicily. From the ’70s he moved from a two-dimensional iconography to three-dimensional works with the “Ludoscopes”, three-dimensional boxes in which neon-light elements multiply up to infinity. resulting in a perspective effect like an endless tunnel. For years he took part to the Salon Grands et Jeunes d’aujourd’hui in Paris; he participates in the IX and the XIII Quadrennial in Rome. His work is displayed at the Palazzo dei Diamanti (Ferrara), the ZKM (Karlsruhe), the Neue Galeriem (Graz), the MART of Rovereto, the National Gallery and the MACRO (Rome), the Museum Ritter (Waldenbuch), the MACBA (Buenos Aires) at MACLA (La Plata), at the GRG Gallery (New York), at MUO (Zagreb), at the Tomie Ohtake Institute (São Paulo), at the Centro Cultural Oscar Niemeyer (Brasilia), at the Carlos Cruz Diez Foundation (Panama).
