Perino & Vele trace in the history of Italian sculpture an nonconformist and highly critical attitude towards current events. For sculpture to be truly "contemporary" today, it has to make itself the voice of its own time, contributing with an original and modern language to the interpretation of evolving complex phenomena and denouncing the contradictions, violence and hypocrisy that result in uncivilized behaviour.

Like any other medium, sculpture conveys a message through its material and through its plastic structure, or form. Perino & Vele model papier-mâché into forms that allude to news items, burning themes of social denunciation and the distortion of reality carried out by the mass media.
