2AGENTEN now represents Berlin resident and artist Agostino IACURCI, who expresses his creativity by means of monumental creations. He studied Visual Arts and Etchings at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, and his works are featured in solo exhibitions: Tracing Vitruvio, Musei Civici, Pesaro (2019); Gypsoteca, M77 Gallery, Milano (2018); Trompe l’oeil, Celaya Brothers Gallery, Mexico City (2017).
“His practice embraces a wide range of media, including painting, mural, sculpture, drawing, and installation. Iacurci combines his artworks with scenographic spaces to transform the perception of given environments. Starting from specific topics like the use of colors in the ancient and classical world, he questions issues of traditions and identity, investigating the process of idealization underlying historical myths and their impact on the collective imagination.”
Since 2009, he has realized monumental wall paintings and installations for institutions such as the BBDO Headquarters, South Bank, London (2018); Yakutsk Biennale, Yakutsk (2017); Distrito Tec University, Monterrey (2016); Govind Puri Metro Station, New Delhi (2016); Istituto Mario Penna, Belo Horizonte, Brazil; Puerto Rico’s Stadium, Bayamòn (2015); Fubon Art Foundation, Taipei (2012).
He is also the latest Premio New York 2020 Award winner, a development program of MiBACT, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy, the Italian Cultural Institute of New York, the Italian Academy – Columbia University and the ISCP. His clients include Apple, Adidas, Einaudi, Laterza, La Repubblica, MailChimp, Mindspace, Penguin books, Starbucks, TBWA, The New Yorker, Urban Outfitters or Vespa.

Illustration, wall painting, installation, environmental design – that’s what GILLES & CECILIE, now represented by 2AGENTEN, stand for: “Gilles & Cecilie is a multi-disciplinary creative team which met at Central Saint Martins during a fire alarm and have been creating together ever since. Their aim is to put creativity at the center of all their creations. Every project is unique, and they always work to improve details, ideas, color palettes, lines, expressions, and craft.”
They just recently realized animations and illustrations for the 2020 launch of NORWEGIAN AIR, Wall paintings for the press launch of the new RENAULT ZOE as well as wall paintings for the RED CROSS head office in Oslo: “Colorful murals make spaces welcoming. This tunnel between two buildings in the Red Cross head office in Oslo used to be dark and a place to hurry by. NOW it’s used as a place to chat, smile, soak up some good energy, take photos or films. It’s not just a place you go through but actually stop and spend a little bit of time in between.”
The two grant a glimpse at their studio during the filmed preparations to THE ULVEN PARADE.
Further clients include Nissan, Diet Pepsi, The Guardian, The Royal Mint, Le Monde, Paul Smith, Moleskine, Eurostar, Oslo Design Fair, or AOL.
