Nathan Brujis has developed a visual language that mirrors a sensation of the expressive power of the subconscious and the spiritual. Starting from simple geometric forms and gestural brushstrokes arranged in layers, Mr. Brujis’ voyage solidifies into a multidimensional discovery of opposing forces, an embodiment of the universal fabric as seen through the eyes of the artist. His works abandon direct representation of recognizable objects in favor of abstract forces, an expressive lyrical experience of instant reaction with subconscious images. Each piece is its own intuitive process of discovery. Some works find themselves quickly, while others have layers exploring the density of time and take months to make.
Nathan Brujis was born in Lima, Peru, in 1971. He studied art and philosophy at Brandeis University and graduated from the American University of Washington DC with a masters degree. He has been awarded important art prizes such as the Deborah Josepha Cohen Memorial Award for Excellence in Painting in 1992, the New York Studio School Faculty Award in 1994, il Premio per la Pittura Lorenzo il Magnifico at the Florence Biennale dell’Arte Contemporanea in 2001 and 2003. He has exhibited extensively in New York, Lima, Peru, and Italy. He currently lives and works in New York.
