Born in Rome, Luca is a painter, a photographer, a video maker, but above all a curious observer of contemporary life, of which he enhances the ignored peculiarities and details thanks to an inventive point of view.
He represents ordinary aspects of urban settings through a personal creative visual code, dedicating most of his attention to the poorest elements of society.
The subject of his last project “Bianco Trash” is rubbish, which he considers one of the elements that best describes our current consumer society. Through paintings and photographs he represents the worst side of our advanced capitalist culture and reshapes the idea of garbage to create an impressive aesthetic presentation.
Why did you decide to call your exhibition “Bianco Trash”?
I was looking for a romantic title that reflected my working technique using white acrylic paint and trash bags as canvases.
What do you like the most about “Bianco Trash”?
What are the feelings you would like to generate in people who see your work?
I’m always trying to give a straight anthropological message to my audience, but whatever feeling you can get out of my work is good for me.
You are an ‘active spectator of contemporary life’. How would you describe that in 3 words?
What would you definitely not change about contemporary society?
