Lucio Perone was born in Naples and attended the Liceo Artistico in Benevento and in 1994 graduated in sculpture from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Napoli.
He and his brother shared the same educational training and professional beginnings and both participated in the Bandiere di Maggio in Naples in 2000. On that occasion he displayed 15 pencils in PVC and resin in Piazza del Plebiscito. He repeatedly uses pencils of various dimensions in his works, hanging on walls or on the horizontal plane of a chair. These are objects that ‘infiltrate’ space, common objects that Perone reworks and reproduces, focussing on the significance of words and hence a conceptual foundation. His sculptures stand out for their cheeky humor because of the way these widespread objects and subjects are presented in an extremely realistic fashion, but in most unlikely ways. In 2008 he had a show at the Galleria Mimmo Scognamiglio in Naples as well as participating in other shows and art fairs such as Artissima and Art Bruxelles.
