Each trail created by his hands defines his expression and personality. By breaking with pre-conceived movements, Giuliano provides opportunities to let out all his – plural, ambiguous, immersive, volatile, and indecipherable –feelings on surfaces. The monochromatic aspect evokes the pure obsession with the pursuit of perfection, shortening the interaction between creator and observer.
PEDRO H. MELO, curator
For 16 years, Giuliano Martinuzzo has been inviting its appreciator to a universe of compositions exploring the complexity of the human mind. He engraves the meeting of abstract and organic through a mysterious and subliminal tracing. His works are fluid and expressed in curves, reflecting the most primal organic shapes, the line, Giuliano calls to the unconscious, to the origins of life and thought.
Born in São Caetano do Sul, in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, he has, since his infancy, been submerged in compositions belonging to a parallel reality, a reflex of his timeless and introverted worldview that, through the years, translated into an explosion of indecipherable shapes representing Nature, a topic that he has always been intrigued by. The simple traits, in sharp contrast with complex forms have ever since become part of him: a vice and an obsession to find the perfect curve are applied in attempts that intrigue yet please the observer, being recognized and praised by his technique and minimalist and particular style.
His artistic ascent comes from a turbulent and unconventional path, woven between the desire to create, an initial background in interior design, and contact with new architects. He started developing art on walls for close friends to eventually collaborate with prominent figures in the national architecture scene, gradually participating in group exhibitions in Brazilian and international galleries, as well as decoration shows, until he was recognized for his unique and minimalist technique and poetics.
Currently, his work is exhibited in major cities such as São Paulo, New York, Los Angeles, Vienna, Paris, London, among others.
