About Luigi Quarta

Luigi Quarta, italian surreal artist, based in Parabita - a small town in the province of Lecce- has a knack for dreaming up surreal masterpieces. his work is constantly and surprising.

In 2012 a friend convinced him to start a basic course in digital photography. He started this course as a hobby, two years later he continued with more advanced courses, finally, that hobby became his passion and, these days his profession.

In his photographic vision, he represents a fantastic journey in a parallel world. He uses as an instrument of expression, combining different techniques to evoke the mystery and hidden meaning behind physical objects. Luigi’s strange creations tap into an unknown world. Words will not do justice to the magic found behind Luigi’s surreal pieces.

Thanks for visiting. Hope you'll enjoy my work.
