Andrea Bucci was born in 1966 in Viareggio, Tuscany, on the Italian seacoast, where he lives and works. Son of an artist, but self-taught in his medium of terra cotta, he laid aside a career in architecture to place himself under the critical public eye and affront the road of an artist. He has the spontaneity of youth but also the determination of one who has objectives and wants to pursue them. His ceramic and bronze figures have poetic simplicity: where, however, everything has a sense. Certain accentuations and deformations finish his pieces with a normal appearance, as if the reality is that represented by the sculptor, and not vice versa. He has enormous bravura in making us accept personages and situations that seem to come out of a book of poetry, and not out of a kiln. He has a light touch and a fantastic grace in all that he presents; but he also has drive, energy, and comprehension of the possibilities - the end result is mastery of his medium. Since 1986, Andrea has created his art on a professional level. He works both in clay and bronze in small and monumental sizes. Andrea actively participates in the Italian artistic life, with numerous collective and personal exhibitions, along with maintaining and exhibiting in his personal gallery in Lucca, Tuscany, Italy. Andrea's first foreign exhibit was held in 2000 in Montreal, Canada, with the sponsorship of the Institute of Italian Culture. From there other exhibits have followed in the U.S.A. and Northern Europe. In 2008 he entered and won his first public art competition in Olso, Norway, held by the Selvaag Gruppen for their Peer Gynt Competition. The sculpture, titled "The Wild Buck Ride" will be installed in the fall of 2010. Andrea's sculptures are in public and private collections in: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Korea, Lebanon, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, U.S.A. , UK.
