Luca Lettieri

Adelaide, AU

In his multidisciplinary art and design practice, Luca Lettieri investigates relationships, connections and dependency as depicted through a series of abstract sculptural assemblages. Spanning an eclectic array of mediums often comprised of steel, stone and ceramics, Lettieri’s colourful works draw inspiration from southern Italian folk art traditions and the inherent tension between natural and manufactured materials.
‍Lettieri undertook a cabinetry apprenticeship with Jardan in 2013 before going on to study traditional furniture making through the Sturt Craft Centre in Mittagong in 2017. Lettieri completed JamFactory’s Associate Program in the Furniture Studio in 2019 and was the recipient of the Italian Australian Foundation Fellowship, which allowed him to travel to Europe to investigate rural folk art, and fine craft traditions.
