About Bruno (9li)

Mythological, spiritual, pantheistic: the first adjectives to define Bruno 9li’s metaphysical world, one of the most interesting emerging artist within Brazilian artistic panorama. 9li (pseudonym/abbreviation of Bruno Novelli,1980) synthesizes within his artistic production several dichotomies and contradictions of the Brazilian world: metropolitan, ephemeral and technological.

In his works, animals seem to spring out the diaries and bestiaries of the first European explorers of the “New World” and epic heroes strongly impose themselves to the spectator’s attention. A return to origins, a lost golden age, permeate of symbolism where you can clearly notice references of pop culture, comics and science fiction films.

With his frenetic and saturated line, Bruno 9li draws a chaotically ordered world, ruled by a mysterious alchemy that controls, between past and future, death and resurrection, fantastic metamorphosis and genetic mutations of beasts and paladins into demigods and androids.

In spite of his young age, Bruno 9li has been recognized by his work at the international level with solo exhibitions in Europe, North America and the Far East.

"As lovely and fascinating as they are, they never rise above illustrations of a personal world. They are dynamic and bright but one sees faults throughout with each image.Nonethelesss, he has achieved a lot in the last year with publications, and I would be interested in getting a copy of ROJO if the website had given me instructions on how to buy it."
