Artist Luigi Presicce

Luigi Presicce

Porto Cesareo, Lecce, 1976. Based in Firenze

Trained in the scope of painting, Luigi Presicce for years has synthesized the results of his studies with the language of performance, staging tableaux vivant with a metaphysical and surreal character, with echoes from popular iconography, from collective and personal memories, rich in allegories and symbolic allusions to esotericism, religion, traditions and ancient beliefs of his homeland.
The rituals, the stratifications, the references to the history of art, characters and events of recent history have marked all of Presicce's research, in which the intense symbolic force of the images and the constructive structure have always declared its matrix pictorial.
