Giuseppe Beddru


Giuseppe Beddru is an Italian self-taught artist originally from Sicily. His first formative years were spent in Agrigento, where the painter absorbed the influence of traditional Greek art, its mesmerizing attention to beauty and the imposing volumes of human bodies. Beddru brings all these elements to life in his layers of multiple Plexiglas panels through a palette of vigorous colors and rich Mediterranean textures.

Beddru’s distinctive approach to painting awakens memories of past experiences and conveying them to the present time. He paints not to change the world but the way we look at it. Painting becomes a medium to represent his visions and beliefs, a way to represent humankind in a large variety of interpretations. His brushes break social conventions and lead our attention to the essence: humankind in its whole.
