Ludovico de Luigi

Ludovico De Luigi (born 11 November 1933) is a contemporary Italian sculptor and painter living in Venice.

Career[edit]

De Luigi's first exhibition was in 1965 with his one-man show at the Gallery "Il Canale" in Venice which included two large works, views of a decaying and monumental Venice invaded by waves of insects and fantastical beings. Upon meeting with the gallery owner Luciano Ravagnan in 1968, De Luigi's exhibition activity increased in Venice and abroad. There were exhibitions in Trieste, Milan, New York, Munich, Monte Carlo, Paris and, beginning in 1975, in many German cities.

Alongside works with themes of Vedutism and entomology, he depicted threats which menace Venice: flood water, pollution, technology, and consumerism. Venice is represented in surreal visions, catastrophic, sensual or decadent, using an oil technique; the "electronic brush" of the computer is used later.

In the 1980s De Luigi produced sculptures, including enormous bronze horses inspired by the famous Triumphal Quadriga of St Mark's Basilica. De Luigi's horses are now in the squares of Marseille, St. Louis, Chicago, Denver, Perth and Bolzano. As of 2004, two of the horses were installed in the lobby of the Adam's Mark hotel in Saint Louis.[1] For the Venice Carnival of 1990 he created a huge chocolate horse of the same dimensions. In 1999 he sculpted one in Murano glass.
