Gemis Luciani is an Italian artist currently living and working between Italy and Berlin.

His research focuses on the expressive potential of an act of formal reduction.

By manipulating,de-composing and re-assembling common objects such as design magazines, phone books and flyers, he reconfigures them in newly built systems of shapes and surfaces investigating the abstract elements of visual depiction.


He graduated in sculpture at Fine Arts’ Academy in Bologna; he studied photography at Art Kunst Istitute in Enschede (NL) and started collaborating with Teatrino Clandestino - a well known fringe theatre company from Italy - as set designer and performer.
