Gabriela Giroletti is a Brazilian painter living and working in London. Giroletti was born in Porto Alegre, Brazil in 1982. She graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from the Middlesex University, London in 2015 and MFA in Fine Art from The Slade School of Fine Art in 2018. With her work, Gabriela explores the relationship between the painted image (the meaning, the immaterial, the metaphor, the mind) and the material presence in the painting (the corporeal, the touch, the physical presence, the body). Giroletti was awarded several prizes including the Desiree Painting Prize in 2018 . In the same year, she was the runner up for the Chadwell Award and was shortlisted for the Elephant x Griffin Prize. Giroletti is a 2019 Bloomberg New Contemporaries artist and in 2019/2020 she held a position of a Research Associate at Slade School. In 2021, Giroletti will take part in a WABI-SABI show at Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, London, UK. Gabriela’s other recent shows include Catamaran, Thames Side Studios Gallery (2019), Hix Award, Hix Art Gallery, (2019); Black Stuff, Unit 3 Projects (2019); The Nomenclature of Colours, Slade Research Centre (2019), FBA Futures, Mall Galleries, London (2019); Marching Through the Fields, Jeannie Avent Gallery (Warbling Collective), London (2018).
