Born in Formia on August 21st 1966. He lives in both Rome and Turin, teaching Decoration and Multimedia Installations at the Academy of Fine Arts in Frosinone (RM). He is a multifaceted artist: a musician, an actor, a visual artist. He makes videos, installations, and performances. In recent years, his work has focused mainly on the productions of videos, photographic images, and on what he calls blitz. Lying somewhere in between urban art and performance, blitz features elements of great disturbance and visual impact. Hybridizing with ethics and aesthetics, technology and behavioral actions, De Luca stresses the interaction between the environment and the public, denouncing the crisis of values of our time with both irony and commitment. His design and consequent methodological and operational choices have always been characterized by the use of multiple linguistic registers. The common denominator is the need to break down securities and codes of formal expression, deceiving reality and surprising spectators from behind. The artist sews a delicate equilibrium between different signs of nature. The task of the audience is to decode this web through active participation and responses to questions that cannot be eluded. Although operating on many fields, Iginio De Luca develops a consistent and solid body of work. The artist took part in several personal and collective exhibitions both in Italy and abroad.
