Biography

Nicolo Van Lucas

Nico Van Luca, is the artistic pseudonym of the Milanese painter Luca Ghilardi, chosen to pay homage to his son Nicolò as to always feel him close in this adventure in the world of art and life. Born in Milan, now living in Bergamo. Ghilardi’s painting is full of strength and without second thoughts. It can be classified into action painting, or action painting. Ghilardi has a pictorial style in which color is the fully protagonist, it is launched and then modeled on canvas. The resulting work emphasizes the physical act of the painting itself, it is an action not conceived, not designed, in the ways and in the final effects. A sort of violent reaction chosen by the artist against meticulousness and technicality. In all Luca Ghilardi’s works, one immediately realizes its congenital complexity and the elementary nature that supports it. Color is the protagonist, because the artist knows how to dig deeply into it to bring out its transparent and luminous qualities and potential. Elaboration of a researched technique acquired over years of creative experimentation. This is the case for all great works, masterpieces of those artists whose pictorial language has had a considerable cost of tension and spiritual labor. His painting frees a cognitive experience tuned to the rules of art as a function of those on life and the forces of the deepest love: that of a father. To increase the expressive and emotional power of his works is the choice of large canvases, which have sizes ranging from 150 x 180cm up to 2/250 x 300cm x monumental.
