19 Apr Luca Valentini
Luca Valentini is a young artist endowed with superlative technical quality. The classicism of the cultural environment in which he lives, his modern way of painting united with the contemporaneity of his subjects and the depth of his messages makes him a very interesting artist appreciated by all and especially loved by the younger generations. Luca Valentini is an engineer who made his learned use of the technique as the starting point for a superlative vision of art. The truth that his bold portraits exude with massive use of black and white, refers to life as a perpetual state of becoming: a future that is impossible to seize, because it is mysterious and ambiguous, suspended in the eternal contrast of its colors. All those celebrities, immortalized in a series of symbols and metaphors, represent purity uncorrupted sedimented in the reworking of famous covers of newspapers and magazines, that emphasize with deafening incisiveness their iconic value. His action painting is three-dimensional and material and reflects on contemporary art, but it is enriched with contamination between the marvelous street art and the solid German expressionism; his canvas becomes an imploded universe of suggesting and meaning. In this way Luca Valentini is able to make the space of his paintings as universal and cosmic, taming it with magnificent obsessions and polymath that intimidates and shakes asks questions and gives answers: his world is not conciliatory; it is strength and tension. The synthesis of his art is not yet to come, because his pulsions talk to us about a curious artist that desires to experiment new languages and that allows himself to inspiration, without fear or reverence. Despite his young age, he has done numerous exhibitions in major Italian cities, Miami, Los Angeles, Montecarlo, Hong Kong, London, Istanbul, receiving great approvals among critics and audiences. Some of his works are in very important collections.
In the last five years the evaluation of his works improved more than 150% and will continue to grow cause of the big request on the market.
In the 1st quarter of 2019 Luca Valentini will be on the cover of VOGUE Middle East magazine.
