Luciano Colossi was born in the city of Porto Alegre, southern Brazil. He left his hometown during childhood upon professional means conducted by his father and during his life he also moved around to other cities in his country.
Moreover, as a teenager in high school, he had the opportunity to live in the United States of America with his family during the years between 1986 to 1989. There his father achieved the academic degree for Doctor of Education at the George Washington University, Washington D.C. There he visited museums, monuments, art galleries that inspired him!
Back to Brazil, we may say that his early important artistic outcomes began whilst in college, at The Federal University of Parana, UFPR. Later on, he graduated Master of Psychology at The Federal University of Santa Catarina, UFSC.
Luciano has not been to the Academy of Fine Arts, nevertheless, since youth his curiosity towards the arts was stimulated by the spindrift of pages of encyclopaedias and other books. Perhaps as a result of some personal conflicts he felt then, he discovered a way to overflow his feelings in a spontaneous and therapeutical manner…
So, his creative process begins with his “writings”, a kind of doodle that he developed, where he expresses sensations, sentiments and archetypes… coming from intimate layers of the unconscious.
The results from these experiences are digital prints, in many sizes, and oil and acrylic paintings.
His dedications, besides the Fine Arts, are today working as a psychologist and teaching in this area at local universities.

As Grafias do Inconsciente são grafismos produzidos intuitivamente, numa espécie de “explosão psicográfia” (mas não no sentido mediúnico e sim psicoprojetivo), onde uma linguagem onírica se revela e dá origem a estruturas posteriormente preenchidas manual e(ou) digitalmente.

As imagens são scaneadas e finalizadas no Photoshop. Nesse processo de acabamento o artista trabalha em camadas onde se apropria de outras imagens, oriundas de ilustrações, fotografias e pinturas, em geral, produzidas por ele mesmo.

Como resultado final temos belíssimas imagens que se parecem com o que ditar a imaginação de cada um!

Luciano Colossi acredita que sua arte estimula a imaginação, a criatividade do oservador…
