Gianluca Capozzi

Gianluca was born in 1973 and graduated from the Academy of Fine Art in Florence and still resides in Italy in the town of Avelino.

Gianluca furthered his studies on Hyperrealism at the Faculty of Fine Art in Granada for a year. In this period, his journey in the painting world began, at first as a dreamlike and internal sight, then influenced by the esoteric and ancient world too.

His poetics focus on the Consciousness and the Knowledge and, according to him, Art can impart them more than anything else.

From his pictures and with a Divisionist approach, Gianluca realizes his hyperrealist paintings.

 

 

 

He has taken part in many exhibitions where he’s had the possibility to share his perspectives with other important contemporary artists.
