Gumm (1969) was born in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Venice, where he still lives and has his own atelier.

The love for art has distant roots. Even as a child he loved drawing, copying and recopying objects from everyday life until he achieved the perfect replica. When it comes to art, Gumm has a truly pinpoint attention to detail and realistic rendering.

Aware that he would become an artist, he studied photography and made his debut with his first exhibition during the Venice Biennale, inspired by the creative and vibrant atmosphere that pervades the city during the days of the exhibition. His photographs have something of the photorealism of Ralph Goings and the exhibition is a success.

However, he is not satisfied. Photography is not enough to express his art. He looks at Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg and Cèsar Baldaccini whose realism, colors and Pop spirit he admires.

Enlightenment comes to him, unexpectedly, on a cold winter day when, walking through the city, the darkness of the street shrouded in fog is pierced by the colors of an old, abandoned and trampled can. Gumm remains subjugated by it: he cannot look away from the colours, the folds and the effects of time. He takes her home and immediately gets to work, transforming her into the subject of his first work of art.

Today his cans are present in collections all over the world, exhibited in prestigious galleries and protagonists of international fairs.

Alongside the wall sculptures, real maxi cans to hang, he also creates photos of cans, framed in display cases as if they were in a museum.

It goes without saying that the cans are decorated with Pop subjects. From the works of Andy Warhol, to whom he dedicated an entire series - which made him famous - to icons, brands and cartoon characters.

Gumm Art is also very popular with collectors of historical artists who, like art system experts, see in him a future great artist. To be bought today when prices are still average, before, like Andy Warhol's works, they really become for the few.
