Gianluca Art

Gianluca Mattia was born in Bari, Italy. Mattia focused in digital illustration and graphic design. His illustrations are vivid, erotic, subversive, part-emo, part-punk, between realistic and surreal. They operate in some of the same realms of beauty, utilising details like tattoos, blood, tears, piercings, band-aids, open wounds, skulls, odd creatures, hot rods and scars.
