Gianluca Patti was born in 1977 in Monza, lives and works between Monza and Milan. His research is focused on the study of color and matter as tools of narration of personal experience and temporal dimension.
The self-taught study of the history of art has played a fundamental role in the evolution of his artistic research: at the beginning of his own path, he became interested in the pictorial work of great artists such as Pollock, Vedova and Basquiat, deepening their chromatic balance and looking for his own unique approach to color, within the framework of a personal research in continuous evolution. He is then attracted by the artistic currents of Arte Povera and the Readymade approach, fascinated by the decontextualization and new life attributed to everyday objects. He thus began to study the materials most evocative of his own experience, represented, given his education and family background related to the construction industry, by building materials, using them, however, as building blocks of his own artistic process. This results in layered works in which cement products, resins, nets and pigments become metaphors for sedimented memories and traces of the past.
Gianluca Patti's work has been shown in multiple solo and group exhibitions, and has become part of prominent contemporary art collections.
The artist's cross-disciplinary approach has also led him to collaborate on set designs in advertising and interior design and to be selected for art and enterprise projects.
