19 Apr Luca Valentini
Luca Valentini is a young artist that is known for his impressive technical quality used in his works. The classicism of the cultural environment in which he lives, his modern way of painting united with the contemporary subjects and the depth of his messages gained him recognition by all but he is mainly loved by the younger generations. Luca Valentini is an engineer who uses his knowledge in his art works. His bold portraits made up primarily of black and white, refer 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 celebrities immortalized in a series of symbols and metaphors, represent purity in the reworking of famous magazine or newspaper covers. His three-dimensional works combine marvellous street art and solid German expressionism, as his canvas becomes an imploded universe of suggestion and meaning. Therefore, Luca Valentini is able to make the space of his paintings universal and cosmic, taming it with magnificent obsessions that intimidates and asks questions. The synthesis of his art is not yet to come, because his works 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 as well as in Miami, Los Angeles, Monte Carlo, Hong Kong, London and Istanbul, receiving great approvals among critics and audiences.
In the last five years the evaluation of his works improved more than 150% and will continue to grow due to the high demand of the market.
In the 1st quarter of 2019 Luca Valentini was on the cover of VOGUE magazine in the Middle East.
