This is an artist that understands the technology of gifs, glitches, and loops, the bedrock of contemporary gif animation and video art. He finds himself in an enviable position whereby he can use these technologies to expand his work.
Silvio Severino is a contemporary multimedia artist from Porto Alegre, Brazil. He finds his inspiration is in exploring a range of contemporary issues through both collage and gif animation. From nature and the urban, to consumerism and the idealization of beauty and sexuality, from art versus capitalism, to the banality of publicity and celebrity.
In his artworks, photography often becomes collage, collage often becomes animated gif… An exciting new frontier in contemporary art for which this artist is at the forefront.
