ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Gabriel Hune is a self taught artist and illustrator based in Brazil. Hune states, ‘When I was a kid, my favorite game was to draw. Even today, this “joke” is still part of my life. A milestone in my journey was when I met the language of Graffiti during the Urban Art Meeting between Brazil and Chile, in my city, Bauru (SP), in 2011. That same year, I started producing works on canvas and pieces of discarded wood. A year later, I began to create my first street paintings, with the desire to realize an art that was striking to the people and at the same time to reveal my identity and my style. This is heavily influenced by cartoon, pop surrealism and geometry, including the use of vectors and lines. My themes are playful, delicate, impregnated with sensibility, and propose to fiddle with the unconscious of people and provoke varied reflections. To achieve this, I always do an immersion, in my studio, to perform my work. Thus surreal images arise and what is impossible to live in our real plane appears on the screen and on paper. A frequent form in my works is a character who is always in search of the heart. Like me, he believes that by using the heart, life flows better, with more wisdom and light. And then, magic happens: the light that shines in my heart is put on the screen in the form of fantasy and everything becomes possible, even for my audience, that can be awakened to the hidden enigmas of love and dream.’
