LUZ Biography

Marco Luzzi was born in Milan on October 15, 1972. His training belongs to the world of theatre. He was an actor, director, author. But ,above all, lighting technicians: a fundamental role for a sensitivity devoted to aesthetics and the psychological investigation. Lights and shadows to highlight and hide. To lead a narrative parallel to the main one through an impalpable matter, able to penetrate within the souls of the characters and of the spectators. Too many reflections violently burst into the mind of the artist, so he cannot help himself to try to crystallize them with real material, palpable.

The painter LUZ was born In the 2009: Illusionist of the daily, transformist of the matter, character without mask only on stage. The great challenge of the art of Luz is to communicate a current reality, using a language and an immediate aesthetic. His art is, at the same time, a spontaneous flow of productions – paintings, objects, matter – of which the author is simple active witness. The BOP series plays semantically with the large artistic POP current. A channel for spirits, in fact, does not feel the awe of the great currents of the past. And so LUZ does not restrain his artistic instinct from retracing the neoplasticism of Mondrian, the Dripping of Pollock and the deformation physiognomy of Picasso. Not to mention the tight ties with the theatre, its themes and its atmospheres. Luz, going throught the teathre and its controversial lights, became the visual artist he is right now

The small rounded characters that inhabit the works of LUZ speak a cheeky and contemporary language, with winks to the more aggressive and colorful Street Art. It is a strong sensory reminder to attract distracted looks. But immediately bring them back to reflection: our society crosses a homologation process. We are hopelessly alone, therefore. Alone in the midst of the teeming. We are dumb in deafening noise: unable to express ourselves with something that goes beyond a conventional signal. This theme of loneliness permeates all the BOP paintings.
