Identity, borders and crossings portrayed through human figures - especially in female representations - are structural points in Luciano Cian's research. An imagery construction that dialogues with his personal experience of origin - and the lack of a sense of belonging. Throughout an almost nomadic childhood, the Brazilian artist experienced different landscapes, peoples and cultures. Most of his family left the triple border between Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia, leaving Mato Grosso do Sul state and heading to the interior of São Paulo. From there, Luciano Cian lived in several Brazilian cities and regions until he settled in Rio de Janeiro. From these multiple experiences, the artist invites us to think about the idea of ​​belonging, mixing signs from Latin American cultures with contemporary graphic elements. His work develops different visualities of the creative force, regardless of a defined border, since all our ancestry at a given point is collective. Luciano Cian's figures talk about the importance of dialogue, the confluence of origins and their customs, with an inclusive look, proposing a form of connection and bridge between the continent's diverse manifestations - bringing influences from African culture: due to the migration of slaves during the long period in which the transatlantic slave market lasted. In drawing, linocut, acrylic or oil on canvas/wood, his characters encompass different ethnic groups, with empowerment and gestural power. The highlighted line of the drawings incorporates a simple color palette, with great contrasts. Visual elements, textures, and patterns that range from indigenous ornaments to modernist elements reinforce the figure. Luciano Cian was born in 1973, in Lorena, São Paulo, Brazil. Currently, he lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He has worked in partnership with brands such as Ray-Ban (Milan), Northwell Health Hospital (New York), Nescafé (Frankfurt), The Healist (London, New York), Blue Note (São Paulo). Participated in exhibitions at MuBE - Brazilian Sculpture Museum (São Paulo), European Institute of Design (São Paulo), Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage (Rio de Janeiro), Centro Cultural Justiça Federal (Rio de Janeiro), Museu de Imagens do Inconsciente (Rio de Janeiro), Galeria Pretos Novos de Arte Contemporânea (Rio de Janeiro), Galeria Colecionador Contemporâneo (Rio de Janeiro), Museu Nacional dos Correios (Brasília), Galerie Espace L (Geneva, Switzerland), Boxpark (London) between others.
