Kiss&Arrow was set-up by artist Luca M Damiani

"Kiss&Arrow is for me a symbol to describe my ongoing process of adjustment for living with my sensory disability. The kiss represents acceptance and the arrow, positive action and direction."

"This evolving, cross-media project aims to explore my art as therapy and communication whilst living with a sensory disability and neurological condition, and also aims to build a collective-community of neurodiverse artists."

“A kiss to the way we are. An arrow for present action and direction.”


Multimedia Artist, Luca M Damiani works and practices internationally. He works and experiments with diverse creative techniques, exploring artistic processes and reconsidering the combination of methods.

'I like to explore and be dynamic in my work, and it is important that my practice is part of an ongoing conversation on the role of the arts in various sectors. This web-gallery is a sort of archive and progression of some of my practice; not everything is available online of course, but I want to keep this space as an evolving reflection of my artistic development. I have been lucky to have worked, collaborated and met with amazing people in various professional fields; this has enabled shaping experiences that also inspire my own artistic development and commitment. I enjoy practicing with creative techniques such as illustration, photography, technology, garden design, digital and mix-media, all using up-cycling.'
