Jaime Gili

Venezuelan-born, London-based artist Jaime Gili is known for a painting practice that moves away from the strict, traditional boundaries of the canvas, and into the realm of public interventions. He uses bold, modernist designs on a huge scale to play off of pre-existing architectural features and cover spaces like walls and even entire building facades. Gili’s large-scale works are deeply intertwined with his Venezuelan heritage—referencing the public artworks commissioned in Latin America during the oil industry’s economic boom times of the twentieth century. 

Gili has exhibited his work widely, including a solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Winterthur, and group exhibitions at the Liverpool Biennial, Kunsthalle Bern, the Institute of Contemporary Arts, and the Royal Academy in London.
