Get to know Luca Lugosis, the artist behind LUGOSIS MILANO.
Some people refer to him as Enfant perdu and the tattoo on his face is a clear message of why they call him so.
No wonder, Lugosis started drawing before he could even speak. Everywhere whenever there was time, he worked on his creations without even looking up.
Using the walls of his family home in Italy as a canvas, these walls quickly transformed into the facades of big cities. Getting lost in his drawings and then on the streets, like a stray dog at night, the now Berlin-based artist has left his nest and travels the world without a destination.
For the wanderer inside Lugosis, however, the city of Milan played an important role in the development of who he is today. The streets, walls, trains and people connecting to the Italian metropolis has led the all-rounder to be one of the most desirable underground artists Europe has to offer.
The cartoon characters 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 will take your breath away.
Inspired by different characters, weirdos and misfits, the artist recognizes the beauty in the non-conventional. He expresses his own reality, through a variety of creative approaches. From graffiti to tattoos, he tries to understand the world around him without prejudice.
Lugosis has collaborated with different types of Streetwear brands, from "garage screen printers" to the "big players", every project he has been involved in has been celebrated by many. It was only a matter of time before Lugosis took his work to another level and created something of his own.
