Danilo Martinis


Danilo Martinis exhibits at Galleria Gagliardi since 2011.

"An original painting that is projected in real space surrounded by colors that give the great dynamic qualities forms. Martinis Danilo reveals considerable technical skill, geometric expressiveness is well marked, both in its use of colors that allow it to reach maximum spontaneity of language. The design becomes a free expression of ideas suggested by the human body, the artist presents images that become the version of his graphic-figurative thought, a search for perfection through chromatic effects. By subject, the artist uses mainly the female figure placed in a rarefied atmosphere of strong visual impact. Martinis in his art lives on her own feelings: a painting taken from the precise, meticulous in detail, anchored in a way congenial to a substance of pictorial and plastic forms in flux, flowing shapes of contrasting charms of lights, one color and contortions. A sort of stunned immobility revealed a desire to communicate and discover the inner life of the characters, environments conferred by irregular movements, which are designed in a meandering search instinctive style of pure beauty. Danilo Martinis offers images of communication of feelings generated by their contact with nature and humanity, solitary figures, who live in a mysterious world of their own, in deeper emotional depths of the senses. The Art of Danilo Martinis is a valuable indication to reach real art of our time.                               " Monograph of Italian Art Archive - July 2010                                                                                                                                                              Many personal exhibitions in public spaces and museums:  Miami, Milan, Florence, Ibiza, Moscow Russian, Capri, Monaco, Dubai and Mumbai.

He started drawing by pencil at the age of 5, and never stopped since then. In September 2009 he started his career as professional artist.

Danilo Martinis has an important background of research and stylistic evolution behind him with an initial interest in Action Painting. 

In 2005, Martinis evolved his style with a new form of expression inspired to OP ART, the Optical Art Abstract art movement born in the ‘60s and tied to the Kinetic Art movement which aimed at giving the viewer an experience of an optical illusion and of perceptual instability (Vasarely, Rilely…) where the human figure isn’t considered. 

Martinis, however, interprets the Op ART in a personal way, introducing faces and figures that are mostly female and drawing their bodies so that curves and straight lines intersect, transforming them into figures suspended or immersed that merge with the background of the painting and create a perception of concave/convex, as if they were in continuous movement.

Many solo exhibitions in publicspaces and museums: Miami-USA, Milan, Florence, Capri, San Gimignano Italy, Ibiza-Spain, Moscow- Russian, Monaco-France, Dubai-United Arab Emirates and Mumbai-India.
