Giuseppe Migale (aka Giumetric) was born in Southern Italy. During his formative years he had two main passions, one for the arts and the other for math, geometry, and science.

Giuseppe is a self-taught painter and a digital artist. His view of the world is through a geometric filter where everything can be represented by a specific shape, made only of a combination of straight lines. His work is characterised by the absence of curved lines or circles which represent for him, his distinct character trait of being straightforward and direct.

 

After high school Giuseppe  moved to Milan to pursue one of his passions, where he graduated in Engineering from the university “Politecnico di Milano”. Although he kept an interest in art in general, he painted his very first painting only at the age of 32 and then did not paint anything further for another 8 years.

Upon moving to the UK in 2016 with his husband and beagle and getting settled, his passion for art started to re-emerge. However, it wasn't until December of 2019 he commenced his journey into the world of geometric abstract art.  Having now completed 20+ paintings in 18 months with more than half of those being commissioned pieces, his passion has been emphatically reignited.

Giuseppe is a self-taught painter and a digital artist. His view of the world is through a geometric filter where everything can be represented by a specific shape, made only of a combination of straight lines. His work is characterised by the absence of curved lines or circles which represent for him, his distinct character trait of being straightforward and direct.

Bold blocky uniform colours are another element that features prominently in his works. Black lines are usually used to confine these colours and give them specific and exacting presence within each artwork.

His work goes from completely abstract pieces to more figurative illustration subjects in an eternal battle between his need to push the boundaries of his creative process and a deep-seated rationalism that provides each artwork a structure and precision of elements that ensure an intense attention to detail.
 

“Giumetric” is another facet of his work, that is characterised by creating a figure from the intersection of straight lines. His exacting creative standards dictate that everything is represented and re-interpreted with this concept in mind. In this process each line has a meaning and a function. Every piece or image then becomes two dimensional. Lines are added and removed only where necessary. They are adapted and inclined in order to find the right balance and harmony of each work that is reflected by the creation of specific focal points. 

 

These focal points are the intersection of three or more lines strategically placed to provide the art lover a resting point for their eyes allowing them to appreciate this agglomerate of lines that create the subject of the artwork.

 

This extends to his range of “Giumetric” portraits that are geometric halves linked to a real image of the sitter using only straight lines. 

 

He prefers to work under commission as this gives him the opportunity to create something more personal for each client.
