Nunzio Miano

Repressed Trauma, 2023

54 × 44 cm
This piece is a depiction of a child in abstract form, made up of a multicoloured rainbow. It aims to portray our inner child that we all carry. We've all got stuff to sort out, sometimes it takes a lifetime to be comfortable in our own skin. Most the obstacles stem from childhood, repressed memories and trauma and this piece aims to convey that contrast of bright optimism with a sober reality.
Fuelled by his never-ending creative energy, Nunzio Miano has been fascinated with themes of identity, belonging and acceptance. Nunzio’s work explores his personal journey, reflecting on his cultural heritage and upbringing, and in particular the theme of multi generational residual trauma. Nunzio’s work ranges from figurative to abstract. Brightly coloured and expressive works contrast with dark and melancholy pieces that explore human representation, distortion and convey deep emotion. Nunzio began his tertiary studies in the Visual Arts at the University of Melbourne. He then graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from Monash University, Melbourne. He has most recently studied at the Academia d’arte in Florence, Italy and completed an Artist Residency at Residenzia il Palmerino in the Florentine hills. He is self represented and has been showing his work commercially since 2018.
