Biography

Giuliano Martinuzzo’s art invites 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 light, fluid and expressed in curves. Reflecting the most primal of 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, Giuliano 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: the vice and obsession to find the perfect curve are applied in attempts that intrigue yet please the observer. His artistic career has developed from a troubled and non-conventional path, torn between fulfilling his thirst for creation and originality and his formal education on the field of interior design: Giuliano started his career experimenting on his friend’s apartment walls, and soon was working together with architects of great renown in Brazil, gradually participating in collective exhibitions in Brazilian art galleries and interior design shows, being recognized and praised by his technique and minimalist and particular style.

Artist statement

How many lines does it take to tell a story? In my art, infinite. Each trail created by my hands define my expression and personality. By breaking with pre-conceived movements, I am interested in providing opportunities to let out all my feelings - plural, ambiguous, immersive, volatile, and indecipherable – on surfaces. The monochromatic aspect evokes the pure obsession and my pursuit of perfection, to shorten the dance between creator and observer. At the beginning of my career I was very inspired by maritime elements, the jellyfish, with its gracious movements specially. Now, I am more focused on terrestrial elements, natural elements: forests, the curves in nature. I often feel as if I were permeating two divergent worlds, and that reflects on my work in the primal force of the artist’s sentiments: sometimes I feel guided by strong feelings, exposing internal conflicts, and other times I am much more serene and minimalist – but never in between.
