Luigi Rocca was born in 1952 into a family of artists. Influenced from childhood by the photographic works of his grandfather, he has become one of the leading exponents of photorealism. Rocca's life has always been oriented towards artistic content: Art high school, studies of painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Turin and repeated study visits to New York - the city full of architecture, advertising and light that inspires him to create great photorealistic motifs. Luigi Rocca creates unique illusionistic and detailed paintings that are recognized by art lovers and collectors worldwide. His love and fascination for the world and art metropolis New York City, which was the center of his artistic life for several years, spurs Luigi Rocca again and again to create new breathtaking works around the Big Apple. Whether Times Square, Fifth Avenue, Central Park or the New York skyline - like hardly anyone else, Rocca immerses us in the pulsating atmosphere of this fascinating city, which never sleeps and which is especially considered a world capital of modern and contemporary art, to which he sets a monument with his paintings. These seem so realistic that it is difficult to discern the differences between photo and painting. Only on closer inspection does one realize that the eyes of the hyperrealist capture more than a wide-angle lens. Like no other artist, Rocca knows how to create a monument to architecturally outstanding buildings. In his typical painting style, he makes facades appear in a special light. Luigi Rocca's works are shown at international exhibitions and are appreciated by a large circle of collectors worldwide.
