Meet the artist

Gianfranco Ferré

Brazilian-born, London-based David Elia is an award-winning artist and designer. His work embraces cultural hybridization and gambiarra, a Portuguese word referencing a makeshift problem-solving style common to Brazil, generally necessitated by or alluding to a lack of tools and inspired by a tradition of resourcefulness—as well as upcycling and Post-Minimalist tendencies.

Much of Elia’s work uses Brazilian society as a frame through which to consider nationally and globally relevant issues through research of human sociology, urban policy, environmental topics as well as security.

Elia’s work is included in multiple public and private collections, including Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Paris), The Museum of Arts & Design (New York), The François Pinault Collection (Paris), and The Sir Elton John Art Collection (London), among others.
