Lives and works in Rotterdam

Nazif Lopulissa (Tiel, 1991) is an artist based in Rotterdam. Lopulissa describes his work artistic research into Dutch playgrounds; the tension between play and regulation as a basis for abstract painting. Formally, his painterly practice since 2018 can be divided into two series. On the one hand the gradient works, in which hand painted color gradients on canvas are cut up and sown back together. The other series, the collage works, have a stronger focus on sewing and collage; multiple layers of cut canvas are sewn on top of each other, exploring figurative form and layering within a canvas.
