Lugosis

Get to know Luca Lugosis, the artist behind LUGOSIS MILANO. Some refer to him as “Enfant perdu” and the tattoo on his face makes it clear. No wonder, LUGOSIS started drawing before he was even able to speak. Everywhere and whenever there was time, he would work on his creations without even looking up. Using the walls of his family's home in Italy as canvases, these walls quickly turned to be the facades of big cities. Losing himself in his drawings and later in the streets, like a stray dog at night, the now Berlin Based artist left his nest and is mostly traveling around the world. Nevertheless, Milan played a major role in evolving into who LUGOSIS is today. The streets, the walls, the trains, and the people which connect him to the Italian metropole led the all-rounder to be one of the most eligible underground artists Europe has to offer. The cartoons he draws may seem childish and playful, but you might want to take a closer look. The way LUGOSIS transforms his thoughts and perception of the world into illustrations might make you lose your breath. Inspired by different characters, the weirdos and the misfits, the artist recognizes beauty in the unusual. He’s is expressing his own reality, through a variety of creative approaches. From graffiti to tattooing, he is not trying to judge but to understand. After collaborating with different kinds of Streetwear brands, from “garage screen printers” to the “big players“, every project he involved in, was celebrated by many. It was only a question of time for LUGOSIS to bring his work to another level and create something on his own.

Signed by the artist.

“My style has changed over the years, I always try to represent the reality that surrounds me, good and bad situations and experiences, with a simple and direct language. The use of comics allows me to mask the violence in the eyes of those who prefer not to see it. In a “playful” way I tell, through my drawings, the reality of the street, the situations of those who struggle to find their place in the world, of those who want something more and who fight to get it.”
