Federico Luger is a Venezuelan artist and gallerist. He lived in Caracas, Venezuela, until the age of 21, where he studied drawing at the Armando Reveron Art School, and painting with Adriana Cifuentes, a very original “outsider” artist. In Caracas, he also studied social communication, graphic design, photography, and international commerce. At the Accademia di Brera in Milan he studied fine arts, and was especially influenced by professor Nicola Salvatore. After several years spent travelling around Europe, he opened an art space in Milan, which then turned into Federico Luger Gallery. However Luger never stopped his artistic practice, which he preferred to conduct in secrecy, reflecting on conceptual art, perception of art, and the art system in general.
