ENQUIRE

Defi Gagliardo (ARG)

Gustavo ‘Defi’ Gagliardo, was born in Villa Real, Argentina into a traditional Italian family living in a small neighborhood in the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires.

He studied design at the University of Buenos Aires, but his flammable spirit soon burned beyond the limits of academia, and inspired him to create Fase with some other artists; a movement that synthesizes illustration, motion graphics, music and experimentation.

This movement served initially as the basis for his personal development, but later branched out into distinct plans of artistic action.

Around 2001, he played an important part in the birth of Street Art in Argentina, which emerged as a medium of direct communication with the spectator, in a time of crisis for Argentina, while at the same time generating alternative spaces, due to a lack of galleries willing to appropriate fresh works.

It was as a consequence of this movement, that animals, friends and the street were spontaneously transformed into the material on which his explorations of color and his constant search for reaction express themselves.

He evades categorization and definition, escaping them through perpetual mutation. His fashion line Lindo Killer brings his art to unique garments, that transform the person wearing them into a mobile painting.

While the street remains his natural environment, he has exhibited his work all over the world, displaying it in London, Berlin, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Milan and Tokyo.

His maquette series was born out of necessity, when he found himself in between studios and had to temporarily relocate his activities to his home. He soon concluded that the only work that could reasonably be undertaken in such a confined space, was small scale, and his maquette series was born.

These maquettes are typical of Defi’s world view: no matter how severe the devastation and chaos…romance, hope and serenity will always prevail.
