I am a mixed media artist who uses original African fabrics and newsprint as a major element in my art, the African fabrics are used to show my identity as an African and also give an insight into my subject matter or narrative as it concerns issues regarding the African continent and the diaspora, the newsprint at the other hand, I use to seek texture and also make social commentary. Both the fabrics and newsprint put together create a feeling of dynamism to the viewer.
Kiss&Arrow is a series of original abstract paintings by artist Luca M. Damiani. It is a platonic painted reflection as a hymn to love for life, a kiss to be shared with people you love. Kiss&Arrow symbolises a deeper love to many details of life and to connections that people can form. Whatever type of love (are you a Sicilian Blood Orange? Or a Lime+Lemon, or PassionFluo, or Sweet Angel or Steady Touch, and more!), here takes an abstracted form of a kiss, with sharp lines and painted textures.

I’m Brazilian, I was born in a city in the state of São Paulo called Limeira. Since I know myself, I draw, paint, scrawl. My universe has always been artistic, the way I think, feel, speak, always comes in the form of art, that's why I express myself that way.
I moved to São Paulo (capital) at a young age and then my "voltage" increased, changing my projection as an artist and increasing the visibility of my works.
