Interview: Luca Nebuloni
Luca Curci talks with Luca Nebuloni during CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2022, at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.
Luca has spent his years capturing the still image of people, smiles, cultures, streets, and landscapes moving between the continents and exploring the world. A native Italian, Luca resides in Milan, equally at home walking on a foreign street, hiking a volcano, or discovering ancient ruins. He started really young taking photos with a lot of different devices, from a film camera to a smartphone, to digital reflex, any device that lets him catch the moment. Fascinated and curious about light and his interaction with subjects around the world. His work reflects his passion for travel and his curiosity to see different cultures. He also exhibits his work internationally in several exhibitions.
Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Luca Nebuloni – Art is the way an artist can show others how he sees the world, with the chance to make others think more deeply about a different way to see.
LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
LN – I started with photography when I was really young, about 12 years old, I loved to take photos anytime, anywhere. Having an innate curiosity I started to travel a lot, walking on the streets of the world I was fascinated by the people and places I see around me. So many different but familiar eyes. All this wandering pointed me to street photography, which is the one that attracts me more,
LC – How is your creative process?
LN – I usually plan my travels in places I’ve never been before, searching for a different culture, different colors, and different habits. I consider the routines of people, such as open-air markets or religious ceremonies, and weather forecasts. Being in a commonplace and having the opportunity to catch a “decisive moment” gives me the biggest reward. Process my images always take a lot of my time because it’s hard for me to get really satisfied, some little change can make a great difference in the mood of the resulting image and I’m not happy until I got the same exact feeling of the shooting instant.
LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
LN – An artist is someone who, with his works, is able to make other people think.
LC – Did your style change over the years? In which way?
LN – My style obviously changed and it still does, I feel always more in the deep part of the great variety that surrounds me, and I was always more attracted by people and how they act in their world and in their habits.
LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this event? How is it connected to the theme of the entire exhibition?
LN – A different way to see images, from canvas to a photo, another way to see and experience art from a different media.
LC – Can you explain something about the artworks you have in our exhibition?
LN – The Photos are chosen for the exhibition were the ones that come from so far away and, each in a different way, brings a change inside me, it is awesome to see, especially these days, how beautiful and varied is our world, and that thinking in only one way is dangerous and shortsighted.
LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
LN – Surely yes, I find that ITSLIQUID does a great job in supporting and serving artists and giving them great opportunities. It gives me the opportunity to exhibit my work in one of the cities I love more. Having just recently become aware of ITSLIQUID GROUP, I am very excited and pleased by my discovery. I find ITSLIQUID to be an inclusive organization/platform rooted in the intentions of serving and supporting artists, which of course, for myself as an artist, is great.
LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
LN – Yes, undoubtedly yes, all the staff was really kind to me.
LC – What are your suggestions about our services? Is there something more we can provide to artists?
LN – Since it was a “pandemic” exhibition, it was normal but really good, I don’t have any advice.
