An accomplished artist, professional dancer and mime, Steven Colucci has had a lifelong pursuit of the arts. Born in New York City, Colucci studied at the School of Visual Arts, where he found inspiration in the action paintings of Jackson Pollock and his professor, performance artist Vito Acconci. He went on to Paris to study pantomime and ballet under the tutelage of world-famous dramatic movement artists Marcel Marceau and Etienne Decroux. As a classically trained ballet dancer, Colucci performed in front of thousands while traveling throughout Europe and the United States for 20 years.
Today, Colucci is recognized as one of the foremost artists of our time, whose work reflects his artistic life and offers a synergy of his experiences. Steven Colucci’s latest artwork, a collection of 17 new paintings which debuted in September 2008 at Mark Hachem Galerie in New York City, references his career as a professional ballet dancer and mime. The paintings depict his iconoclastic approach to performance and visual art, and incorporate his signature gestures of varying states of movement.
Colucci’s artwork has been exhibited at National Arts Club in Gramercy Park, the Grant Gallery and the Belenky Gallery in SoHo. The artist is a recipient of the prestigious Sam Flax Memorial Award, and the Orestes S. Lapolla Memorial Award from The School Art League of New York City, and he has been featured as a guest artist at the Museum of Modern Art. Colucci’s most recent venture is the launch of Colucci Couture, a custom line of haute couture evening gowns and dresses featuring his original artwork. His design studio is located in the heart of the fashion district at 247 West 38th Street, New York, NY 10018.
