Jaime Gili was born in 1972 in Caracas, Venezuela. Lives and works in London.
Jaime Gili is recognized by a pictorial practice that is not limited to the mediums of traditional painting, and occasionally expands the scope of public intervention. In his paintings, murals and works of public art, Jaime Gili seems to have a particular view with regard to art, architecture and the modern design of the mid-TWENTIETH century, rescuing them from there a few elements that attempt to overcome the abundance of bad interpretations postmodern. To do this, he often makes use of the fiction, imagining intersections, and developments of ideas that ended up in blind alleys, as it has done recently with the work of Armando Reveron, Carlos Scarpa, Gio Ponti, or Max Bill. His work, although it has frequently a force iconic reminiscent of the modern abstraction, emerges as she of traditional processes of painting and the workshop, a laboratory, where it is proposed to journal the shock of the possibilities running rampant in the modern spirit with the present.
