The artistic strand of studiopluz evolved from the experimental project J&PEG. Born in Milan, Italy in 2008 the imaginative tandem of Antonio Managò and Simone Zecubi originally came together to produce performance art. Over time, they grew to focus on the development of Contemporary Artworks, showcasing different creative languages and techniques, such as photography, painting, performance, video, installation and drawing.

While early works experimented with largely surrealistic notions, dynamic compositions, color and various shapes, the main concentration was always on a human in all its emotional and physical intricacy. In recent years the focal point of the pieces was the protagonist's profound and genuine internal journey represented not through simplicity of the facial expression but through complexity of postures, gestures, tonality and overall atmosphere of the composition. The creative process was truly bespoke and began with a stage-like setting where all interior details, objects and protagonists are covered by hand with a thin fabric. The setting is later photographed and the main goal of post-production is not to modify a composition, but to work on imperfections, thus allowing the piece to preserve its full authenticity.

J&PEG’s works are included in private collections and exhibited in foundations, museums and galleries –  Castello Sforzesco - Villa Reale - Palazzo della Regione in Milan,  Boghossian Foundation in Bruxelles. Works have been published in several art magazines, books and catalogues. 

J&PEG is represented by Gallerie Poggiali and Galleria Gagliardi & Domke.
