LUCA M.

ARTIST&FOUNDER

I have a sensory disability caused by an accident in 2018 - it has been a sudden and massive change, and I now co-live with a neurological disorder. I used to work extensively as a digital artist and digital art producer (www.lucadamiani-art.com), and I now really struggle to use the computer for everyday emails, never mind using all the softwares and creative tech I used to work with. So, brushes and canvas became my refuge: Kiss&Arrow has been a way for me to rechannel my practice, and to paint and put out many emotions and challenges I had to face and still facing. It is for me a gentle kiss to life, whatever type of kiss to a dear friend, family member, a partner, a natural element (for me water!). A concept of love for life, with big deep emotions we can share with a simple kiss and a hug. My Kiss&Arrow then became yours and theirs and hers and his Kiss&Arrow. Painting for you means a lot to me. Luca x&>


CHIARA

AGENT

What I love about Kiss&Arrow is the exploration of the theme of love and health (mental and spiritual health) as a powerful and dynamic energy that is generated through the connection between two people, beyond any label or convention. With sharp lines, many textured colours, and diversity even in its similarity, I feel that its design and meaning is more than ever relevant to all of us these days. Chiara x&>



SACHA

PRODUCTION MANAGER

I manage the coordination and distribution of all Kiss&Arrow paintings, as well as the production of all Kiss&Arrow t-shirts. I love the sharp connection with all Kiss&Arrow colourful artworks and the Black on White only t-shirts. Luca's hand-painted design shares love with a few brush-traits, and this  is then screenprinted in all tshirts, basically creating a wearable Kiss&Arrow painting for all to have! It is also great to be part of the whole set-up of the Kiss&Arrow lovely brand. Sacha x&>

TOOTSIE

ARTIST-SUPPORT&DOG

I hang around the studio during the creation of all Kiss&Arrow paintings. I just make sure that Luca does not get too overloaded, as he also needs to  rest a lot and do many daily therapies for his neurological disorder. In this way, he stays healthy and can keep painting a little bit each day.  Tootsie x&>
