Curriculum Vitae

Lucca Colombelli is a Brasilian-American artist currently living and working in Chicago.

 

Beginning with an interest in realism before becoming more heavily influenced by abstract expressionism and post-modern artists; he now seeks a balance. His current work reflects a symbiosis between form and abstract, focusing on surreal and humorous observations, often of disaster and in various degrees of subtlety.

 

Beyond painting, he makes a living as an art instructor in early childhood education, as well as privately teaching, curating charity events, and doing art consulting for businesses and private homes. Commissions and classes are open.

 

In 2020, Lucca founded Povos, an artist-run gallery, custom works service, and art events social action organization in Chicago. Povos launched at 2000 N Milwaukee Ave in 2021
