Giorgio Celin’s (b.1986, Barranquilla) figurative paintings are boldly introspective, joyous and melancholic. Inspired by his experience as a queer migrant, born in Colombia and grown up in Italy, Celin’s art explores themes including belonging, relationships and nostalgia. Narration has a fundamental role in his series and paintings, which are often the condensation of poignant moments and dear memories, of joy and despair, love and reflection. Celin has been exhibited at 1969 Gallery (New York, 2023), EXPO Chicago (2023), Breach Gallery (Miami, 2023 and 2022), 68 projects (Berlin, 2022), Galleria Annarumma (Naples, 2022 and 2021), Asia Art Center (Taipei, 2022), Art Busan (2022), Eve Leibe Gallery (London, 2021), and Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (2019) among others. Celin lives and works in Barcelona, Spain.
