Umberto Ciceri

 

Born in 1961 in Milan, Italy, Umberto Ciceri graduated from the Academy of Art and Fashion and the Textile Design University in Milan.
For 25 years he conducted personal research on neurophysiology, perception and the biology of sight that would become the premise to his artwork. 
Ciceri applies his early studies of neurophysiology and visual syntax to the construction of hypnotic art installations he calls “Hypertraits”.
Specialising in handmade lenticular, his panels feature silhouettes of figures and objects in seemingly perpetual motion.
Perception is broken into a multi-step process, as viewers must first concentrate their attention to the out-of-focus figures, before physically shifting their sight across to experience the movement of the artwork.
Ciceri describes the use of lenticular technology in his work to “provoke and trigger intense creative participation” as a key mechanism of his artistic process. Here, the observer becomes the engine of the work.
He lives and works in Barcelona.
