Nello Petrucci, (born Aniello Petrucci), born in Castellammare di Stabia (Naples), on January 26, 1981, is an Italian artist and filmmaker, lives and works between Pompei and New York.[1] Known also as a street artist, his technique through the use of paper, mainly film posters, collagè, and halftone demarcates his hallmark. [2] He studied cinema in Rome (2000), and graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples in Scenography (2010), professor Antonio Capuano. [3]

He is the first Italian artist to exhibit at the World Trade Center in New York in 2018, with the permanent work "The essence of Lightness", together with world-famous street artists such as Rob English, WhlsBe, Lauren YS, Layercake, Chris RWK, in the Silverstein Foundation project led by Larry Silverstein. [4].[5] [6]

Sensitive to environmental and social issues, to which he has created installations such as: "Plastic River", depicting a whale full of waste exhibited in 2019 in Pompeii to denounce the excessive use of plastic that threatens the planet; "Refound" at the Archaeological Museum of Herculaneum (2019).[7]

Among the institutional venues, he exhibited: "Art as the film of life" at Palazzo Gravina in Naples (2010), [8] ”La Grande Illusione”at the Central State Archives of Rome (2012), [9][10] “Convergenze Parallele” at the Ex Polveificio Bourbon in Scafati (2013), [11] Castel del Ovo in Naples (2013), Royal Palace of Naples (2014), “Pompei e i misteri dell’eterna bellezza” at the Archaeological Park of Pompeii (2019), [12] “Over the Sky”t the American Embassy in Rome (2019),[13] “Il Canto di Circe” in the monumental complex of San Domenico Maggiore in Naples (2020),[14] and in several galleries in New York and Shanghai.[15][16]

He has created several sculptures, mainly with the use of iron and Corten steel. A sculpture of him: Trame (2021) is permanently exhibited in the Arsenale of Venice, joining the prestigious collection of the Tethis space together with Michelangelo Pitoletto, Jean Fabre, Beverly Pepper, etc. [17]. More than the aesthetic component of the work, Petrucci looks at the ethical value that it communicates, for an art that is the expression of an inner revolution capable of changing consciences.

He has also made various independent film projects, receiving numerous awards such as "Lost Love" (2017),[18] “L’ultimo whisky con il cappellaio matto” (2020),[19] of which he has and won the silver award for best fantasy short film at the Independent Shorts Awards, [20] and also received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Short Film.[21][22]

Among the street artworks around the world, we remember “Sweet home” (2020) [23] considered among the nine most significant works in the world during the pandemic period. A particular episode happens with the work "Imago” [24] made in Castellammare di Stabia, after only three days the work is vandalized, [25] the artist does not bend and readjusts it by including the criminals in the work, enjoying considerable success. [26]

Respect for eco-sustainability and the protection of the locations chosen for his interventions leads him to be called: "the kind street artist".[27]

He is the artistic director of the Pompei Street Festival [28] and Stabiae Street [29], inviting about 40 street artists from all over the world to his city. From C215 to MCity, Francisco Bosoletti, Ledania, Gianpiero, Mr.Kas, etc. [30][31] [32]. "Art as a form of change, social evolution, a redevelopment project through art, making the street an open-air museum." - Nello Petrucci. [33]
