Sculptures by Gustavo Martini seen at Private Residence - Italic


Item details

Italic is a collection of luminous sculptures in marble that explores the aesthetic aspects of the typographic universe. After a careful study of this universe, the main idea in which the writing system is created to communicate a specific subject is modified, to propose it again in order to become the subject in itself. Each symbol is composed of main sections and transversal lines at the ends, as a remnant of the Serifs.
In this way the author suggests the public to observe moving away from traditional codes.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Gustavo Martini got awarded as Next Generation Designer of The Year 2017 by Wallpaper* and Officine Panerai. His interest in arts began at a young age with drawings, paintings and construction toys that naturally became his profession. During his graduation, he won the Idea Brazil Award and has continued to receive increased media attention as a young upcoming Brazilian author. On his Studio at the very first year, he was invited to exhibit at the Miami Art. As he has lived the majority of his life in Rio, Martini has a strong sense of connection with the city which he believes combines two contrasting worlds. This includes the metropolis with all the chaos and vertical grey landscape together with the surrounding rain forest and hidden waterfalls. Currently, Martini lives in Milan after completing a Master graduation at Istituto Marangoni where he became I’M ambassador. By working with strong identity, he has being known by his ability to produce either products or art installations worldwide. His greatest passion is to create, with complete freedom of expression. Martini typically spends the days exploring concepts, forms and volume to create a stripped experimental language that creates a unique style that can be easily recognized. Recently he collaborated with Giulio Cappellini other than having presented a sculpture at the Venice Arsenale, participated in Art markets like Piasa and also ADA which is a project by the art advisor from Floridi Doria Pamphilj family and also presented an installation for Alcantara in the renowned MAXXI museum in Rome.
