Luca Dall'Olio


Luca Dall'Olio was born in Chiari, Brescia in 1958. He was educated at the Art College in Brescia and graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Milano in 1980.

He traveled extensively to Turkey, Morocco, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, USA, Brazil and China, which played a fundamental role in the evolution of his artistic style.

His works are of our/his Mediterranean wonderland, testimony to early civilizations. "This is what "we" breathe here in Italy, in this amazing Mediterranean world." The oniric buildings represent unity.

The lighthouse is the light of life, our need for a material and spiritual reference point. His use of color and shapes transmits these emotions and transports the viewer into other worlds.

Many of his drawings have been used as illustrations in the poetry of Bruno Dall'Olio, in "Marcovaldo" by Italo Calvino and "Con un ultima onda sfinita" by Gianni Tavella.

A large mosiac of his decorates the subway station "Villa Bonelli" in Rome and he was asked again to create one for the Fiumiciono station.

He was present at the Biennale di Venezia, 54 Padiglione Italia, the Biennale del Mediterraneo (2009), Dali Museum of Barcellona. He lives and works today in downtown Brescia.
