Luca Barcellona

Lives and works in Milan, Italy.
Luca Barcellona is 34 years old. He has his own studio in Milan, where he works as a freelance graphic designer and calligrapher. Letters are the main ingredient of his creations. He teaches calligraphy with the Associazione Calligrafica Italiana and holds workshops in several European cities. The goal of his work is to make the manual skill of an ancient art as writing and the languages and instruments of the digital era coexisting. In 2003 he founded with Rae Martini and Marco Klefisch the collective Rebel Ink, with which he gave life to live exhibitions of calligraphy, writing and illustration. In 2009 he has worked for the National Museum of Zurich, with calligraphist Klaus Peter Schaffel, to realize the faithful reproduction of a big globe dated back to the 1569, using calligraphy with original materials (quill and natural inks). Among the brands that requested his lettering we can number Carhartt, Nike, Mondadori, Zoo York, Dolce & Gabbana, Sony BMG, Seat, Volvo, Universal, Eni, Mont Blanc.

Among his latest collective exhibitions: “Oscuro Scrutare”, at the Patricia Armocida Gallery in Milan, the project “Some Type of Wonderful” in Melbourne/Sidney and “Don't Believe the Type” (Den Haag). As well as taking part to several independent projects his works appeared in many publications, as the american magazine “Letter Arts Review”, and many books published by Gestalten as Los Logos, Arabesque2, Hand to Type.

In 2010 he produced his own personal clothing brand "Luca Barcellona Gold Series". He recently published his first monographic book “Take Your Pleasure Seriously” by Lazy Dog press, the publishing house of which he is a member himself. His intensive study of lettering led him from graffiti to classic calligraphy, up to big wallpainting, typography and letterpress printing.
