The Architect

Vincenzo De Cotiis was born in 1958 in Italy. He studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and founded his studio in Milan where he lives and works.

His work represents a winding path that often doubles back upon itself, one fuelled by parallelisms of space and time, cultural layerings and quantum leaps. A process imperceptible to reason and intellect, yet manifested through the materiality of his countless works.

The Artist

Vincenzo De Cotiis speaks of the impelling need to seek new manifestations that can conflate archaic idioms with futuristic expressions. His creations are born out of an assembly of recovered materials and reflective, futuristic surfaces and appear evocative in their final form. A form of art and design that is not replicable.

De Cotiis’ work was presented at the Museo Franz Mayer, Mexico City, the Ca’ d’Oro on the occasion of the Venice Art Biennale, and the Powerlong Art Museum in Shanghai. His installation art, Ode, will join the permanent collection of the FENIX Museum of Migration in Rotterdam.

Selected pieces are available through Vincenzo De Cotiis Gallery in Milan, and at leading global art and design fairs including Design Miami, Dubai Design Week, PAD,TEFAF, The Armory Show, Zona Maco.
There is nothing other than the perpetual and incessant uncovering of things of the past to filter them through the lens of contemporaneity. After all, no material or drawing is truly ancient because everything is always an expression of the present. — Vincenzo De Cotiis
