Everyday inspiration
Ugo Li was surrounded by creativity from an early age. His father was in fact a
painter and he spent much of his childhood following his parents around art
galleries, so it seemed only natural that he should become a painter. Ugo Li’s work
is highly personal, inspired by both major life events and the small everyday
moments that constitute one's existence. His paintings explore the intersections of
dreams, memory, personal history and daily life.

Media Musings
Ugo Li often takes his inspiration from the colorful advertising that pervades society.
He plays with words and slogans that appear isolated on the canvas and are
intended to provide more of a pictorial purpose since they are removed from their
original commercial context. For Ugo Li the canvas becomes a place for him to
project his emotions, he often removes and repaints the work until he is happy with
the dialogue that has emerged.

Emerging Talent
Ugo Li has exhibited in both solo and group shows internationally in cities such as,
New York, Bangkok, France and Montreal.  His work belongs to collections around
