Luciano is a Melbourne based arts educator and multidisciplinary artist.  


Luciano lives and works on the lands of the Boonwurrung people of the Kulin nation and acknowledges them as the Traditional Owners of the land, paying respects to their Elders, past and present.


Inspired by domesticity, traditions of storytelling and the interwoven relationship between society and fibre, his artistic practice explores aspects of human nature, the shared and differing experience of communities and the relationship between people and textile crafts.


Luciano has a deep interest in the embedded history of found, recycled and passed down materials. He seeks to intertwine the stories, symbolism, and memories of these items into new forms, building on the layers of existing materiality. Exploring various handcraft techniques, Luciano endeavours to link contemporary society with craft traditions through interactive experiences brought about through the integration of new media and video.

Luciano is working on the community arts project "Queer-ways" in collaboration with Georgia Keats and supported by the Australian Queer Archive.

 

Luciano is available for collaborations and commissions.
