Originally from Venezuela, Gili works from a distinctly South American perspective. Influenced by the sharp geometric angles of 20th century architecture and the sleek elegance of classic automotive detailing, Gili’s paintings disengage the international archetypes of modernism: reflecting instead a localised adaptation of style, where design and its social implications have been internalised and customised to represent a unique national and political identity and cultural heritage. Citing his country’s rapid oil-rich economic growth and intensive South American visionary developments such as Caracas and Brasilia, Gili’s paintings address this utopian new world optimism and its inherent failure.
