Born in Sicily in 1995 and educated at Chelsea College of Arts, Oscar belongs to a new wave of young artists exploring a variety of mediums that question the relationship between object and space.
Influenced by a childhood spent between Ghana, Turkey, Egypt, Libya and Italy; Oscar’s work stands alone from the trends adopted by his western contemporaries. Through furniture design, ceramics, illustrated short stories and architectural compositions, his fragmented cultural background becomes evident in opposing textures, blurred shapes and discombobulated faces.
With evident nods to his heroes – Noguchi, Picasso, Le Corbusier and Naum Gabo – Oscar’s mishmash of everyday objects and references come out the other end looking playful, naive and undeniably original.
