About the artist

My passion is eyes, which I use in isolation as affective and evocative objects to create anthropomorphic sculptures

Stefano Prina - Skulptures

Born in 1965, the Milanese architect has always cultivated a passion for manual creations. His main themes include playful objects, kinetic art and Leonardo's machines. The realisation of eyes at all scales and of different breeds of animals is his latest passion. Eyes are used in isolation as affective and evocative objects, for realistic animal portraits and to create anthropomorphic sculptures with a vintage and ironic flavour.
