Tomas

Data and contact details

Artist statement: Luca Tomassini (Tomas) is an independent painter based in San Ginesio, Italy. His painting is imagination. It evokes environments that might be part of a dream. He uses symbols, allusions, dream figures. Sometimes he escapes from reality and he transports himself in a different world. A world that could be an ancestral past, or our next future. He interprets the heritage of humanity through invisible metaphors and elevates humanity to divinity. He is a kind of visionary who uses brushes and canvases to build new universes. There is a purpose of representing and communicating something in his paintings. A sort of thing that extends up to the future bringing myths and allegories, and reinterpreting them in a post contemporary key.
