Artist, Photographer and Visual Sociologist, Luca M Damiani works in the fields of Film-Animation, Arts, Human Rights and Visual Sociology. With a multi-methodological approach, Damiani works with creative techniques such as digital, animation, illustration, photography, mosaics and paintings.
Damiani’s main cross-disciplinary interest is in Childhood and the Visual. This is explored through various means such as character designs, visual narratives and photo-essays. Part of his practice is focused on working directly with children and young people, developing participatory projects using various art mediums balanced with learning and research. Concepts of identity and visual construction are also often present in Damiani’s practice, and this is reflected in his research around childhood. With an academic background (MAs in Animation and Visual Arts, and currently undertaking MPhil-PhD in Visual Sociology), Damiani’s visual work also actively investigates the processes and dynamics involved in both artistic and sociological approaches. Damiani works internationally, collaborating with world-wide leading organisations such as NGO Amnesty International, Award Winning VFX company Framestore, The Walt Disney Company, University Arts London and TATE.
Published artist-author of several books with focus on his visual practice and creative research, Damiani also takes part in talks, events and university lectures.
