To me, art is everything and nothing at the same time; it is everything and nothing, it is birth and death, it is happiness and sadness, it is expanding and contracting, it is questioning and accepting, it is vibrating, succumbing, and many other things. but to me, art is mainly that necessary medically prescribed flight, made of uncountable lines, infinite curves and thousands of paths that bring me to parallel and perpendicular universes.
I find beauty and inspiration in objects and common things. their simplicity and mystery at the same time, fascinate me and unveil to me that kind of magic once and again, a magic that makes inspiration keep alive, and connects me more deeply to the secrets of life, love and spirit.
My work is featured as a continuous exchange of colours, textures and shapes that recalls the organic nature of the creation. besides there is a permanent search for subtlety, where gravitational forces get lost and shapes invite you to an imaginary game of vacuums and fulfills, and understanding rises from the visions and emotions of the spectator, and my energy used in the conception would be just a reference heading that allows the artist-work-spectator dialogue to open.
Edu Luna was born and raised in Argentina in 1963. He lived for almost 40 years in his birth’s country.
During his life in Argentina he got a degree in Electronics Engineering and worked during 10 years as field engineer in a contractor company. Later he got a MBA degree that gave him the chance to be promoted to a managing job. He continued developing his successful career with more responsibilities each time.
Up to that moment, at the age of 40 he started to experience a lack of comfort with the direction of his life. So he decided to leave Argentina towards Spain, where he wanted to do new studies and experience life abroad. He completed his master in HR at the University of Barcelona and he decided to establish in Spain for living and working in the country. He worked as chief in the technical service of a local company.
Soon he realized that he wasn’t enough happy with the new direction until he made a second turn and decided to attend art and sculpture’s classes at the Arts and Crafts School of Barcelona, an old centre where some well-known Spanish artists passed through. Those classes were the starting point of Edu Luna for developing the seed that became into his passion for art and sculptures.
Before completing the art school he set up his own workshop and started working among the community of artists Freixas. He participated in several events like open studios, exhibitions, competitions, fairs and public interventions in Catalonia and other cities of Spain.
In 2010 he had his first solo exhibition in Barcelona at ADA Gallery. He continued working and exhibiting his sculptures in shows around Spain, Italy, France and U, until now.
Last year 2013 Edu Luna made another strong bet and moved his workshop and house to the mountains, in the surrounds of Sierra de Espadán, Valencia, where he continues to develop his sculptures among nature and in a life close connected to the environment.
