GIULIANO SALE was born in Cagliari, Italy, 1977. Lives and works in Milano.
He is a painter with doubts, who investigates the psychological dimension of portraiture, emphasizing the disorientation and moral uncertainty of his subjects by breaking down their physiognomic features.
In his paintings not only anatomies but also environments and spaces are subjected to radical dissolving of form, a fragmentation that bears witness to the confusion of the existential condition today. Far from fashions, rigorous but also irreverent and caustic, Sale explores the ambiguities of our time with a magmatic, fluid language in which the chaotic elements of the post-Cubist grammar achieve unprecedented dramatic tension.
