"Art has the delicate task of leading the viewer beyond the purely visual aspect of the work."
Born in Siena in 1959, Italian artist and designer Luciano Caggianello began his career in the 1980s interacting with various professional fields (advertising, illustration, graphics, design). At the same time, he embarked on a solid path of artistic research that led him to evolve various visual themes and allowed to consolidate an articulated national and international exhibition itinerary. He is accompanied, in his in-depth viaticum, also by the publication of some books ("Intermediario Immateriale" 2003, "Parole altrove" 2014, "Aporia e Metamorfosi dell’Arte" 2019, "Fenomenlogia del quotidiano 2020), which seek to propose and exercise conceptual and philosophical reflections.
In recent years, Caggianello's artistic recognition has essentially become a work of prevalent perceptual synthesis that re-elaborates all the didactic, cultural and intellectual interactions also coming from the synthesis of his multiple training fields (from applied industrial physics, to architecture, to graphics, to design, to the visual). This approach identifies the artistic objective of a basic conceptual thematic planning and experimentation inserted between concrete "poverty" and digital work, revealing itself to be much more relevant to parameters and concepts of presentation than of representation. Caggianello lives and works in Turin.
