Ugo Rondinone’s most interesting artworks
Born in Switzerland in 1964, Ugo Rondinone is a mixed-media artist based in New York. He is best known for his Seven Magic Mountains, a desert art installation found in Nevada. It features seven colorfully painted stone totems stacked more than a dizzying 30 feet high.
With his large-scale drawings, mind-altering paintings, mesmerizing sculptures, and enormous land art installations, Rondinone explores the powerful connection between opposing forces, be they depression and euphoria, artificial and natural, or day and night.
