Gugi Goo | Portugal
Gugi Goo is a Serbian contemporary artist who currently resides in Portugal. She studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Novi Sad, Serbia, then at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, Italy, before settling in Portugal. She paints abstract canvases that explore the human condition.
Gugi Goo is inspired by life when creating her works, particularly the human condition and the connection between individuals. She is also influenced by music and lyrics, and the power of words to resonate; she strives to communicate the sensation of being moved by rhythm and music. Her fundamental aim is to express the most profound human emotions through an exploration of her personal experiences and feelings.
Gugi's accomplishment would be to be able to change other people’s inner world and to color the emptiness in their lives, to put smiles on their faces and a little bit of music on their walls. She would like that one who sees her works, feels secure and knows that there is somebody else who feels the same in this alienated world which we are all part of.
This original, 'darkness may hide trees and flowers,' will be arriving in Hope Gallery soon.
