Ivan Ulmann was born in 1976 in Switzerland, where he lived until he finished his course at the Escola Superior in St. Gallen in 1995. Between 1996-98 he carried out many works in stone, marble and granite for public and private spaces in the Algarve / Portugal. Inspired by the works of Antonio Gaudi and Andy Warhol, he changed his style in 1999 to broken tiles and discovered a new world of art. Since 2000, his sculptures and portraits have led to several successful exhibitions across the country.
Welcome to a world made to be broken,
Where time and past meet and where the present shapes the future,
Where different perspectives lead to divergent conclusions,
Where polarized interpretations create segmentation, strife and conflict,
Where individual freedom is sacrificed on the altar of postmodernism.
Welcome to the lands of ambiguity,
Where faith and reason are harassed in favor of a “common good”,
Where the security spectrum has become the new god of our age.
Welcome to a brave new world
When everything is changing and at the same time stagnating.
Welcome to a world
Where there is nothing new under the sun.
