LUCCIA LIGNAN- (1980 Córdoba, Spain)

Painter and Sculptress . Lives and works in London, United Kingdom

She has painted portraits from an early age, and an explosion of colour is found in her first attempts with paintbrushes at the age of nine. She paints the portrait of her maternal grandmother "Small artwork on canvas", which she still maintains, (Private Collection). Her great-grandfather, a French musician, whose family was mostly composed of theater actors, was an essential influence for Luccia in that universe of her artistic creation. Her elegant and reliable work, perhaps showing the legacy of her English great-great-grandmother. She goes to a painter's studio to receive private painting's class and finishes her education at The Faculty of Fine Arts Santa Isabel de Hungria at Seville University.
Her personal imprint and the beauty of her brush stroke have culminated in designs that merge the political, avant-garde, and collector communities. She likes her characters look, observe, rather than being observed. Her portraits are like the Beautiful Florence, elegant and somewhat reserved, they are pure simplicity, when you gaze at them, the most element emotions get back to you.
Luccia Lignan not only offers a creative panoramic aspect in painting, her artistic activity includes the cultivation of sculpture as well. Her first sculpture works show us an admirable irresistible personality, and her colourist talent in her polychromatic works, woodcarvings or bronzes.
Her painting and sculpture are inseparable. The feminine polychromatic woodcarvings and bronzes, run in paralell and are tied up to her pictorial creations.
