Gustavo_Martini_2017

Gustavo Martini , Brazil.

Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1987, Gustavo went on to graduate in Industrial Design at PUC-Rio University. Since graduating he has continued to receive increased media attention within the field of interior design as a young up and coming Brazilian creative. His interest in the arts began at a young age with drawings, paintings and construction toys that naturally became his profession.
During his very first year practicing in his own Studio, he was invited to exhibit at the Brazilian Art Fair at Miami Art Basel and later that year at the MAM design store in collaboration with three other artists. With a curriculum that includes many exhibitions also in Milan, his greatest passion is to create, with complete freedom of expression and no obligation. Martini typical spends days exploring concepts, forms which goes on to create what he calls a “stripped experimental language for his projects.”
As he has spent the majority of his life in Rio, Martini has a strong sense of connection with the city which he believes combines two contrasting worlds. These include the metropolis with all the chaos and grey landscape together with the sourounding rain forest and hidden beaches with water falls. With a strong identity, he has the ability to produce both conceptual objects or products for large scale production. Currently, Martini lives in Milan after completing a Master at Istituto Marangoni.
