Luca Boni

R700.00 – R3,100.00

Luca Boni is an illustrator and concept artist based in Johannesburg. He has worked at art agencies in Johannesburg and Cape Town, producing breathtaking visual iconography for various projects, while simultaneously working on his  own quirky independent output. Luca is a partially self-taught artist, having studied 3D animation. Yet it has been primarily through working with influential illustrators and animators, while tirelessly honing his drawing skills on his own – both digitally and on paper – that he has developed a beautifully singular style of digital painting. Luca spent his early childhood in Florence, and then relocated to South Africa, which has infused his work with multifaceted references. With allusions as disparate as the old masters and primary coloured LEGO blocks, Luca creates characters that are at once outlandish and relatable, and scenarios that are both humorous and affecting. He is a surprising new virtuoso in the field of painting with pixels. Luca's Bimbo forms part of the pictorial nerve poster series.

Pictorial Nerve

pictorial nerve is an ongoing portfolio series conceived and published by The series is broadly focussed on visual cultures establishing a bridge between contemporary art, design, illustration, photography and other cultural manifestations. Similarly, the anatomy of the series is imagined as a hybrid of a poster portfolio, a zine, an artist book and an artwork. It is an exploration of printed matter, the beautiful nexus between image and text, and elicits a playful consideration of how this material can exist within and outside traditional art spaces. The first iteration of the series looks at a new zeitgeist that is somewhat comparable with what was loosely called The Pictures Generation in the late 20th Century. At the time, these artists were defined by their layered adaptions, revealing the fabricated nature of images, with an element of frank social commentary. Now, a younger generation with varied cultural references
and experience offer a parallel but unstudied cross­pollination of activity that spans numerous creative disciplines. In addition, the transition from analogue to digital has generated a refreshing, brazen and sometimes lateral approach towards the pictorial, especially in the Global South.
