The first publication devoted to the artist, Michael DeLucia provides an overview of DeLucia's practice with particular emphasis on his work as a sculptor. Until recently DeLucia produced work by hand with clay but his practice has since shifted into the digital realm with his current work heavily influenced by computer applications and CAD modeling software. Formerly an assistant of Jeff Koons, he produces sculptures that affect the metamorphosis of practical objects into poetic, humorous apparitions, subverting the expectations of the viewer with his use of everyday building materials and industrial items as artistic tools. Michael DeLucia studied at the Rhodes Island School of Design and the RCA London, graduating in 2004.
