Born in Milan, Ria Lussi’s artistic training crosses both boarders and media; she studied painting in Paris, visual design in Urbino, and poetic translation in Trieste. She currently lives and works in Rome.
Among her exhibitions: the traveling exhibition dedicated to the series of Emperors of Light, exhibited in 2014 at Villa del Principe in Genoa, Galleria Doria Pamphilij in Rome, Palazzo Collicola di Spoleto and finally at Villa Necchi in Milan. In 2015 was held theMater-Matrix-Mother, and in 2016 she presented the project Mitochondriaat the birthplace of Raffaello in Urbino. In 2017 the exhibition Fragilewas held in Mucciaccia Contemporary gallery, and in 2018 she participated at the MacroAsilowith the artistic residence entitled #iosonogiordanobruno.
The artistic technique of Ria Lussi finds its soul in drawing usually performed with a black pen. It is a technique that allows neither afterthoughts nor cancelation. She loves to use different medium such as glass, neon and silk. These fragile but resistant materials are all characterized by a vibrant, almost inappropriate luminosity that express the sense of the fragility of human life; it can break in one moment. About the beings that are the traditional subjects of her works, she leaves free interpretation to the spectator, who in front of them is called to free his imaginative fantasy.
