About Gino Belassen

Gino Belassen (b. 1994, Phoenix) derives his work from an affinity with minimalism + abstraction, echoing a process he refers to as subtle over sound. This idea references the physically intensive layering process involved in his work, while also hinting at his internal desire to simply communicate a message or feeling. Deceptive in their simplicity, his paintings convey depths of meaning through handwritten, oft-cryptic words, and abstract imagery scratched through a drying surface, revealing a glimpse into the chaos that lives inside. They reflect the duality of the human condition, marking moments in his personal life + story that only he can truly comprehend.

His work has been collected across the United States, Europe, the UK, Asia, and Australia.

Director/Owner of BELHAUS Gallery in Phoenix, Arizona.
