Alexey Luka has participated in important international projects, like LGZ Festival in Moscow (2013), the Le M.U.R. XIII project in Paris (2014), the Artmosspere Street Art Biennale in Moscow (2016) and the Marrakech Biennale (2016). In 2014 he created an installation commissioned by Pirelli which was shown at the Hangar Bicocca contemporary art space in Milan and presented by the Italian art critic Achille Bonito Oliva.
With a background in architecture studies, Alexey Luka developed a unique and recognizable style, based on the use of abstract geometric shapes and chromatic variations. Perfectly comfortable with different techniques, spray paints, acrylic paints, sculpture, and collage, Alexey Luka has been creating complex compositions in which the colors and geometric lines interact, resulting in a sort of puzzle to decipher. The observer is left, therefore, to reconstruct and consequently interpret the image, starting precisely with the colors that suggest shapes: faces, characters and landscapes alternate in a game of perception that activates our imagination. Through the composition and decomposition of the shapes and the chromatic combinations, with references to constructivism and neo-plasticism, the artist aims to tell a story, to evoke a situation or a vision, in an entirely unusual and original way.
