Beddru’s distinctive approach to painting awakes memories and experiences from an apparent state of sleep, conveying them to the present time where the observer discovers his unconventional world of art. He paints not to change the world but the way we look at it. Painting becomes a medium to represent his visions and beliefs, a way to represent humankind in a large variety of interpretations, from joy to sorrow, as all emotions deserve to be represented. His brushes break social conventions and clear out useless sophistication, leading our attention to the essence: humankind in its whole.

The artist represents those who are considered “different”, those who are rejected because of prejudice or, simply, ignorance. Atypical characters populate his artistic world and speak up loud to make their voice heard. They are there. They exist.

Giuseppe Beddru is an Italian self-taught artist originally from Sicily. His first formative years were spent in Agrigento, where the painter absorbed the influence of traditional Greek art, its mesmerizing attention to beauty and the imposing volumes of human bodies. Beddru brings all these elements to life in his layers of Plexiglas panels through a palette of vigorous colors and rich Mediterranean textures derived from the reminiscences of the former Arabic presence on his island.

After having admired and studied the works of the great masters, the artist decided to leave Italy and move abroad. He currently lives and paints in his studio in Brussels and exhibits on a regular basis. His artworks are collected internationally.
