Michele Tocca



Michele Tocca Subiaco, Rome, 1983. He lives and works in Rome. He studied in Italy, Belgium and London where he received an MA, Painting, from the Royal College of Art (2011). Executed from life, his pictures ruminate on the experience of painting and the physical world, returning to interrogatives on their reciprocal “actuality”, realism and its paradoxes, perception and artifice, the effects of time and history.
