Gustav Willeit was born in Brunico Italy, and studied at The F+F School for Art and Design in Zurich, Switzerland, acquiring technical skills that can now be found in the formal structures underpinning his innate poetic vision of the world. Since 2006, he has been working freelance in Italy and Switzerland.
The title of his last work the series, PERSPE, originated from a fragment of the German word “Perspektive” (perspective):
a programmatic statement suggested to the composition work, which is based on a simulation that fully exploits the opportunities offered by digital technology.
The artist traces an unnatural perspective, i.e. a perspective that is invented, that acts and creates “different” places by mirroring the image, thus reaching perfect symmetry often disrupted by a discordant element.
