Luciana Araujo

Graduated in Fine Arts at FAAP in São Paulo, Luciana also studied illustration at St. Martins Central, in London.  Pop culture and music are a strong reference at a personal universe that she develops in many medias.

Acid humor, nihilism, erotic subjects and subliminal images under fluorescent masks that transpose humanity and bring out the instinct of emotions. Printing and drawing are as well common skills. The artist contributed to many projects and magazines related to fashion and design, and with brands such as Puma and Melissa. She created the Rock Chick label to produce authorial clothes that became famous by the images and objects designed and signed by Luciana. She also had solo exhibitions in galleys such as Adesivo (Porto Alegre) and ROJO Artspace (São Paulo), and grup shows in Needles and Pens (San Francisco) and in both TRANSFER shows (Santander Cultural / Porto Alegre and Pavilhão das Culturas Brasileiras / São Paulo).

Luciana opens a solo show tomorrow, dec, 10, at LOGO Gallery, showing a series of paintings mixed with silkscreen, in different shades of black ink, exploring anthropomorphous animals mostly in erotic situations. The images you see in this post are part of the show, called A Shot in Dark.

Who is the guest of the day: Ana Ferraz – manages commercial and art projects via NOZ.ART, works with Fita Tape (Porto Alegre) and LOGO (São Paulo) gallery and contributes to magazines/websites such as Void, +Soma, Fecal Face, among others.
