Ugo Li. Paris, France
Ugo Li, born in 1987, is a French painter, who is currently living and working in Paris. His bold, pictorial and often abstract work appropriates and reinterprets the visual signs of today’s society. Everyday inspiration: Ugo Li was surrounded by creativity from an early age, being raised in his father’s artist studio and following his parents around art galleries. His work is highly personal, inspired by both major life events and the small everyday moments that constitute one's existence. His paintings explore the intersections of dreams, memory, personal history and daily life. Media Musings: Ugo Li often takes his inspiration from the colourful advertising that pervades society. He plays with words and slogans that appear isolated on the canvas and are intended to provide more of a pictorial purpose since they are removed from their original commercial context. For Ugo Li the canvas becomes a place for him to project his emotions, he often removes and repaints the work until he is happy with the dialogue that has emerged. Emerging Talent: Ugo Li has exhibited in both solo and group shows internationally in countries such as, the United States, Thailand, Canada and France. His work belongs to collections around Europe.
