GIULIO RIGONI

GIULIO RIGONI

Born in Rome in 1976, Giulio Rigoni is a self-taught artist who has mastered a highly personal style that makes him easily recognizable. His refined and intimate paintings, with their modern take on ancient traditions, have long attracted attention in the world of private collecting. He has exhibited internationally, including at the Dakar Biennial, and in Boston, Paris and more recently London.

Rigoni transports us into a two-dimensional world where the apparent immobility of faces, gardens, labyrinths, castles and towers take on the orderly sobriety of late medieval painting, and where perspective planes open, like Wunderkammer, on amazing fairytale views. Allegory is a recurring theme in Rigoni’s artistic creations. His invented sitters and architectural settings all emerge from the kaleidoscope of an imaginary golden age, establishing a silent conversation with the viewer. At the same time, there is always a playful dimension to the artist’s work which, combined with the influence of late Gothic art and a meticulous eye for detail, adds to the air of enchantment.

Rigoni’s technique typically involves oil paint and gold leaf on wood although over time, he has expanded his research to include new materials such as paper, brass and fabric.
