Born in Rome, Italy, Massimo Mercurio moved to Asia at the age of 24 where he eventually settled down. An extremely versatile personality, Massimo's interests and experiences range from theoretical physics to design, from philosophy to project management.
Majoring in art, philosophy and literature at the College Marcantonio Colonna, he then furthered his studies in design at the University of Rome. Massimo speaks several languages at various levels, among which are Mandarin and Thai.
During his twenty years in Asia he has gathered experiences in design, construction and project management. He also currently drives business as the Managing Director of bespoke Italian design studio, Mercurio Design Lab.
His interest in art comprises both its theoretical and practical aspects. The former sees his works focused on establishing a philosophical framework aimed at supporting the inception of an original style emerging out of the new creative fringes of the East. The latter is concerned with the conceptualisation and execution of dedicated projects designed to spread and represent the manifestation of his theories.
His "Metakaos" ranges from design to more philosophical efforts, with the intention of creating an art movement that eventually could forge the driving ideology of new aesthetic values and trends of the century.
