Get to know the artists of XIV Florence Biennale, Fortezza da Basso 14-22 October 2023
• Tommaso Lucarelli •
Tommaso Lucarelli was born in Pistoia, a Tuscan town near Florence, and his parents are Tuscan too. He spent his teens between Florence and London.
After studying at the art school, at the age of nineteen he moved to Florence and enrolled in a public school of goldsmithing where he was the youngest student. In the years that followed, he attended courses in cad, engraving, gemology and goldsmithing. Also thanks to the contribution of the Academy, he continues to be passionate about the history of the art of jewellery.
In 2016, Tommaso created his own brand and went to New York; after a few months he had his first exhibition in an art gallery on 8 Av. and 42nd Street, which prompted him to devote himself exclusively to jewellery sculpture. After this important experience, he moved to California and took a small fund in the Design District in Los Angeles, where he produced a few works and organised an exhibition at a gallery in the district. On his return to Italy, he was asked by important institutional figures to hold an exhibition at the Marino Marini Museum in Pistoia, where Tommaso exhibited his works to great media attention.
Tommaso also lived in China and Japan, and was fascinated by Asian culture and the traditions of those countries.
In Dubai he exhibited at the Glory Art Gallery, an important gallery at the "Jumeira Beach Hotel", and at the Ethiad Modern Art Gallery, one of the most important galleries in Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates.
In 2018 he returned to Italy with numerous invitations to exhibit in important national and international galleries, with numerous collaborations in workshops, schools, academies, and training laboratories in the goldsmithing sector.
