Artist Statement Art by Ana Luca
  

Ana Luca is a talented European-American artist and writer who imbues her art with a mesmerizing sense of sincerity, youthful exuberance, and personality. Her drive is to create art that is not only reminiscent of her own feelings and experiences but also those of her viewers, using art to entertain and form connections. Her Good Dog illustration collection is a great example, demonstrating metaphor-rich humor and light-hearted imagery brimming with relatability. Luca employs a variety of techniques in her work such as symbolism, use of vibrant colors, and broad brush strokes to energize her audience toward achieving greatness. Feelings of optimism, encouragement, and inspiration emanate throughout Luca’s collections.

Ana Luca also understands the importance of improving climate change and sustaining our environment, which is why she utilizes eco-friendly instruments such as metal frames in contrast to wood when creating her canvases. Her art takes advantage of a digital color palette to reduce environmental pollution attributed to toxic spray paints, acrylics, and oils. With these methods, she takes pride in contributing toward a brighter future in which herself and other artists can thrive.

Ana Luca began her journey in the art world at a young age. Having come from a family of artists, she has spent years studying and honing her craft to reach new peaks. Originally inspired by famous artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, and Jack Vettriano for their contemporary and impressionist styles; Luca now incorporates modernistic and pop-impressionist elements in her work. The uniqueness of Luca’s art is in her meticulousness and diversity of artistic elements implemented across her collections. Whether the viewer is looking for an abstract painting or a comedic photo, Luca makes it simple for her audience to find the ideal composition that fits the desired atmosphere.

Luca's ever-growing portfolio manifests in a wide range of paintings, graffiti art, photography, poetry, and apparel that encapsulates the essence of her creativity. Her prolific web gallery continues to expand, having produced over 100 artworks available to browse and purchase. Luca’s work has already attracted a number of high-profile viewers far and wide, ranging from television hosts on The Masked Singer to reality TV stars appearing on such shows as The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Showing no signs of slowing down, Luca continues to pursue her passion and expand her creative output. With themes revolving around modern culture and personal connections, Luca has designed a platform to broaden horizons and cultivate interest in every facet of the art world.

THE CALLING

Ana Luca’s family discouraged her from painting and, in fact, forbid her from using coloring supplies as a child. Still, art found her. After studying college art history at age 17, Ana Luca independently ventured the world to admire her favorite masterpieces in person. She soon began clandestinely painting as a self-taught artist, initially teaching herself by replicating oil paintings of Monet and other impressionist masters. Her work garnered praise and encouragement from friends, after which she began exhibiting and became sought after as an art teacher and painter. Since, her artistic production has expanded to include photography, illustration, and digital painting. 

 

These are the first paintings Ana Luca made in her teens as a self-taught artist.

Her first drawings at 15 years of age were chalk pastel movie-themed posters she created using her fingers as brushes.

Her natural artistic skill was inherited. These are some of her mother's paintings, who was also a self-taught artist.

Over the years, Ana Luca has produced hundreds of artistic pieces and traveled extensively throughout Europe and North America, visiting art museums far and wide. Her favorite artistic discovery was learning that her great grandfather - a sculptor - was a contemporary of renowned modern sculptor, Constantin Brancusi, and they had trained at the same beaux-arts academy in Europe. She had admired Brancusi’s works for years, since reading of him in art history books as a teenager, never knowing the connection between her favorite sculptor and her family.

ARTISTIC PROCESS

 

Artistic Process Art By Ana Luca

Each original artwork is created by Ana Luca™ using a time-intensive, manual process. The final print unifies tactile and digital mediums in a new visual experience, enhanced by her graffiti and captions.

 

GRAFFITIED FINE ART

// LEGACY PAINTING COLLECTION 

Ana Luca™ produces art using a signature technique unlike any other artist. She classically paints art masterpieces in oil or acrylic on canvas, requiring highly-skilled talent, extensive labor, and premium quality art materials. She then graffitis her own finished work with alternate-reality, digitally-painted elements before reproduction on custom fabric canvas or gallery-quality paper. The end result is an original, avant-garde art print which mirrors the digital age in which we live, produce, and consume content.
