Ugo Li
painter

French(b.1987) I am an artist painter born in Paris, France in 1987. I studied at ESADHAR (fine art school) graduated in 2011. I live and work in Bangkok. My work is something highly personal, taking inspiration from things ranging from major events in my life, to mundane tasks like walking from my house to the neighborhood market. Images are gleaned from the news or magazines but I never work directly from them. It appropriates me, multiple visual signs.I emphasize, however, that this artistic junction where dreams, exploration of memory, thoughts and daily experience intersect isn't prioritized in any kind of hierarchy. Even further, I assert that I don't try to categorize or divide modes of abstraction and figuration in my work either. It's the experience and the process of spontaneously evolving creation. The wandering on the canvas causes the bursting by multiplying the elements and colors, which often reveal to the audience where I covered over, augmented, altered and scratched out until to find a good dialogue and harmony with the entire.
