The uniqueness of Alexey Luka’s Art is the combination of figurative and abstract elements. The resulting forms you can’t clearly define. His wall paintings are huge, flat and geometric. Special about his style is the warm color mood that he creates with MONTANA-CANS that offer a wide range of possible color combinations.
Alexey Luka (Luchko) was born in 1983 in Moscow, where he currently lives and works. Among the most talented and influential young artists in the Russian contemporary art scene, Luka has participated in important international projects, like the LGZ Festival in Moscow in 2013 and the project Le M.U.R. XIII in Paris in 2014 as well as at Wunderkammern gallery in Rome in 2015. Alexey Luka took also part in the Artmossphere biennale in Moscow, 2016. With a background in architecture studies, the Russian artist developed a unique and recognizable style, based on the use of abstract geometric shapes and chromatic variations. Perfectly comfortable with different techniques, spray paints, acrylic paints, sculpture, and collage, Alexey Luka creates complex compositions in which the colors and geometric lines interact, resulting in a sort of puzzle to decipher. The observer is left, therefor, to reconstruct and consequently interpret the image, starting precisely with the colors that suggest shapes: faces, characters and landscapes alternate in a game of perception that activates our imagination. Through the composition and decomposition of the shapes and the chromatic combinations, with references to Constructivism and Neo-plasticism, the artist aims to tell a story, to evoke a situation or a vision, in an entirely unusual and original way.
