Born in Amman, Jordan, Sabbagh studied architecture at Venice (Italy) University and now works out of London, where he collaborates with Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. His works have been published in magazines Arena Arena, The Face, Vogue Italia, l’Uomo Vogue, Rodeo, Gasby, Front, Kult, and Sport & Street. Since 2004, he is present in many collective exhibitions across Europe, and numerous publishing projects such as: Bread & Butter, Berlin, 2004; Human Game e Welcome TO MY HOUSE, Florence (Italy), 2006; Lee jeans book, Berlin 2008.
Italian artist Zucconi became interested in sculpture at the age of 12, when he began visiting the city of Carrara (famous for its marble quarries) and the sculpture workshop known as Corsanini Labortory. He is credited with inventing the kenoclastic technique, which involves the deconstruction of a completed work and subsequent re-composition. In 2010, this technique was presented by Rudy Chiappini at a personal show held at the Museum of Ancient Art in the Castello Sforzesco in Milan. Zucconi’s works have also appeared in the 54th Venice Beinnal, at the Musei Civici of Palazzo Farnese in Piacenz and at the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo in Prato
