Gelo Montiero (b. 1995) better known as Gelofiiish, is a self-taught visual artist, photographer and filmmaker who has explored open-ended narratives in his practice. His body of work consists of films and figurative paintings depicting a surreal alternate world that is cold and dream-like. He taps into his subconscious and psychological brain space to conjure loose metaphors and symbols and weave them into compelling poetic visuals. Gelofiiish recently released SILWETA — a beautifully made short film, a glimpse of the other world he’s created. He is also a volunteer art teacher for street youths.
