Tony Luciani is a Canadian visual artist working in the mediums of painting and photography. He is known for his interpretive realist style and exploration of the themes of nostalgia, memory, and aging. Luciani’s early painting and drawing practice was highly influenced by the Renaissance Masters and often depicts scenes of rural Southern Ontarian life and landscape.
Luciani has received recognition for an ongoing series of photographs of his mother, Elia, who lives with dementia. Their collaborative process and imaginative images have connected them to an international community of caregivers, photographers, and institutions through social media. His art can be found in private, public, and corporate collections worldwide.
