Born in 1985, he lives and works in Milano.
Jem Perucchini proposes a contemporary painting on the mystery of what is being done, on the future seized in formation, based on Renaissance imagery. Creating an intimacy between the painted characters and the viewer, his portraits introduce the figure of the black person into Renaissance-inspired painting, without political purpose.
