Bruno Leti

Bruno Leti (born 1941), is a painter, printmaker, photographer and publisher of artists’ books. His semi-abstract etchings, woodcuts, aquatints, monoprints and collagraphs are well known in Australia through exhibitions and numerous publications. Leti’s paintings are closely related to his graphics, featuring elegant abstractions with restrained use of colour and balanced compositional aspect. Leti is also recognised as a leading figure in the genre of artists’ books, having published these regularly since the 1980s. Leti has been exhibiting regularly since the late 1960s in Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide as well as abroad, most notably in Chicago, Cologne, Kyoto, Milan, New York, and Washington DC.
