New works by Bruno 9Li

September 12, 2012

A few weeks ago, we decided to check up on Brazilian artist Bruno 9Li, who we last featured in our July 2009 Brazil Issue. We knew that Bruno's work looked like a fantastic acid trip of both folk imagery mixed with psychedelic characters, but it is Bruno's work from the past two years, with incredibly surreal abstractions and custom reoccuring figures that have been the artist's strongest work to date. As ROJO notes, "With his frantic and saturated line, Bruno 9li draws a chaotically arranged 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." A good viewpoint.
