LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Matia Luke artist was born in 2014; Instagram -@matia_luke- has been the main visual site to follow her creations. Art, nature, animals... are the concepts with which she works in her montages, full of imagination and fantasy. The mannequins are the leitmotiv of their scenarios and photography. Mannequins can appear as a human reference or as a mere inanimate object, subject merely to aesthetics. Matia Luke is interested in surprising the viewer through exploring the non-limits of visual creativity. It is rigorous in execution and detail, as well as in the effective transmission of the conceptual message. There is also a place for unusual or funny-minded works, as the creative process is often surprising in itself.
Matia Luke made a shop window for the Coshop clothing store on the occasion of the Sant Jordi feast in Barcelona in 2015. Another one was for a shop specialized in medieval decor gifts and heraldry -Mon Medieval-on the occasion of the feast of Sant Jordi in Montblanc, in Tarragona, 2016.
Matia Luke made an artistic montage on the issue of migration for the collective exhibition Baggage Not Declared, in Barcelona, 2017.
Matia Luke has recently made an intervention in full burnt nature to raise awareness about the importance of caring for and preserving forests. In this case, the scene consisted of 49 pieces of mannequins painted black, brown and grey to reaffirm the connection with nature and verify that all, earth, animals and humans, are a unit. The event was promoted by Cendrart in Maials, Lleida, Catalonia, 2019.
