di Luca Barcellona

Writing becomes art and the single letters take on a life of their own.” — (La Repubblica)

The first monograph published on the artist is now available in a new, bigger size softcover edition. The beautifully designed and produced book features hundreds of drawings including commissioned work, personal projects, performances, and many never-seen-before work.

Barcellona is internationally considered one of the most important lettering artists working today. Ideal for calligraphers, graphic designers, type designers, art directors, advertising professionals, illustrators, and students.

For Luca Barcellona, Italian graphic designer and calligrapher, letters are the building blocks of his creations. From Carolingian to tags, from the quill to the spray can, Barcellona takes the age-old craft of lettering to new heights with the inventiveness and talent of a contemporary virtuoso. His striking, expressive, and original letterforms and compositions open onto uncharted territory, laying the foundations of a new writing style. Barcellona’s versatile work is admired and commissioned by major brands in the world of fashion, music, cinema, and publishing.

Luca Barcellona (Milano), born in 1978, is a name that represents a touchstone for the world of modern calligraphy. Working as a graphic designer and freelance calligrapher, letters are the main component of his creations. The aim of his work is to promote coexistence between the manual skill found in antique art forms like calligraphy with the languages and instruments of the digital era. His lettering has been requested by many leading brands in the fashion, clothing, recording and editorial industries (such as Nike, Absolut, Pirelli, Universal, Wall Street English, Carhartt and Mondadori). He has also worked for major museum commissioning bodies and since 2007, Luca has taught calligraphy through the Italian Calligraphy Association. He holds workshops and conferences all over the world, while his artwork has been exhibited in numerous galleries.
