The works of Enrico Dicò are now in the private collections of international figures in the world of fashion, culture, politics, entertainment, finance and sport.
Known as ‘The Fire Artist’, Dicò’s dynamic, exciting and explosive works have earned him international acclaim and private portrait commissions from a diverse range of famous individuals ranging from the Pope to fashion icons; Renzo Rosso, Renato Balestra and Matteo Marzotto to actors; Keanu Reeves, Penelope Cruz, Morgan Freeman, Antonio Banderas, Luisa Ranieri and Javier Bardem.

Born in Rome in 1964, Dicò studied at the Via Ripetta Institute of Art and during his early career he traveled frequently to the United States to explore his passion, Pop Art.
After several years living between his home town Rome and the United States, he began to formulate his own unique and diverse method of creating his art using experimental techniques and methods which would eventually become his identifying stylistic figure: methacrylate combustion. A tool by which he is able to create a regenerating synthesis that allows him to give new life to contemporary myths.
Dicò’s works have been exhibited at major art galleries and institutions worldwide including the Vittoriano Monument in Rome, the Ca 'd'Oro Gallery in Miami and Rome, the Auditorium Conciliazione, the Museum of Contemporary Art Macro of Testaccio, Museo Crocetti and the Museum of Contemporary Art MDM in Porto Cervo amongst others.
