Born in New York City, Luca Vigorelli is a self-taught artist who was mentored by artists James Gortner and Sante D’orazio at Mana Contemporary. He started painting in his youth in East Hampton, NY, where he attended the Ross School’s Visual Arts program. He continued painting in his East Village studio when he moved back to New York City in 2009.
Luca creates bold, imaginative, and narrative mixed media paintings on canvas using acrylic paint, oil pastel, and acrylic marker, pulling from influences such as wildlife, human anatomy, street art and Jungian psychology. Luca is inspired by the inner stories that drive our daily lives; the conscious and subconscious aspects of our psychology. He works to capture a playful and lighthearted side of our mental, emotional and physical challenges as human beings.
He currently lives and works between New York City and Los Angeles.
