Jaime Gili

Jaime Gili (Caracas, 1972) is an artist based in London. He received an MA in painting from the Royal College of Art, after studying also in Caracas and Barcelona. His international career concentrates mostly in Europe, North and South America. Gili has studied the Venezuelan take on the “integration of the arts” from the 1950’s, and his work has been contextualised as continuing a tradition of Latin American abstract art, especially the kinetic work of artists such as Carlos Cruz-Diez and Alejandro Otero, with some input from popular art. He has recently been invited to make permanent works of public art. In Caracas he completed a work in a very high density informal city, and he was chosen to complete one of the world’s largest public art projects on 16 industrial storage tanks in South Portland, Maine.
