Born in Ottati in the early 70’s, Antonio Luigi Pugliese, grew up in a small town in Salerno, nestled at the foot of the Alburni Mountains. Growing up in a small town where, Luigi, a nonconformist, yearned for life in a big city where he could embrace new cultures and ideas.
After high school Luigi moved to Naples to study Architecture, and later Fashion at the Academy in Rome, before moving to New York, where he became an artist.
Art, for Luigi, became a method of communicating his deepest feelings, no matter how private or dark they may be, he felt a deep need to express these emotions through painting.
Today, he lives in London, where he has been settled for many years however his exploration continues in constant motion, Luigi compares maturing as an artist to a London tube, stopping at different stations to be discovered.
Luigi’s collection, Silent Language: Capturing the Essence of Time can be viewed at Marrable’s hotel with some pieces available for purchase.
Through meticulous use of colors and painting techniques, I deeply commit to eliciting a profound response in the hearts of those who observe. My intent goes beyond mere representation of the historical and cultural reality of our time; it’s an endeavor to capture the very essence of the periods we live in. Each of my paintings becomes a vehicle for complex messages, reflecting the indignation and suffering caused by injustices and transforming them into bursts of color on the canvas.
The brushstrokes that compose my works are steeped in deep emotions and subtle meanings, communicating silently and poetically. I invite viewers to embark on a journey within the artwork itself, to mirror themselves in the chromatic nuances and try to perceive what the artist felt in that moment. In each of my paintings, the present unveils hints of the future, like a storm on the horizon.
I firmly believe that art should touch the chords of discomfort to sensitize humanity, urging it to embrace life in all its forms and reflect on our ever-evolving world. My works are invitations to contemplation, an opportunity to connect with the complexity of our existence and embrace change with open eyes.Luigi Pugliese
