This week’s featured artist is Alexey Luka, a Moscow based visual artist whose intervention pieces recently caught our eye via GORGO. Luka studied architecture for 6 years and thus his forms are very structural in nature. They not only use architecture as a backdrop but somehow become apart of the integral structure of the building itself. Using geometry paired with a vast array of mediums, the artist creates an interweaving of shapes and color. His work is very simple and seems flat but seen as a whole the pieces grow and develop dimension that pulls you in like a vortex. Incredibly clean lines, the pairing of muted tones, and rounded shapes all coincide to form organic large -scale works. To learn more about his current projects see the GORGO article above or check out Luka’s website. The artist lives and works in Moscow.
