Artist to Know - Matteo Pugliese

These men emerging from bare, white walls are the works of Milan-based artist Matteo Pugliese. 

These sculptures are very intriguing. It's difficult to tell whether the statues are materializing out of the vertical encasement or actually submerging into a pool of white. Are they breaking free or being engulfed? It's a fascinating thought to ponder.
