Brush lettering is one of the most popular styles in modern calligraphy, it has an ancient tradition and since it takes lot of practice to get good results, it’s very important to know the rules behind this tool before practice. We will start with exercises by brush pen on a model based on an italic alphabet model, and we will experiment with real brushes and watercolours on the second day. Workshop for everybody interested in exploring this beautiful writing style, beginners are more than welcome!

Luca Barcellona is born in 1978. He has his own studio in Milan, where he works as a freelance graphic designer and calligrapher. Letters are the main ingredient of his creations. He teaches calligraphy with the Associazione Calligrafica Italiana and holds workshops, exhibitions, conferences and performances all around the world. The means of his work is to make the manual skill of an ancient art as writing and the languages and instruments of the digital era coexist. His lettering has been requested by the most important worldwide brands among the years. As well as taking part to several independent projects his works appeared in many publications. In 2012 he published his first monographic book “Take Your Pleasure Seriously” by Lazy Dog press, the publishing house wich is a member himself. His study into lettering led him to experience from graffiti to classic calligraphy, up to big wallpainting, virtual reality calligraphy, typography and letterpress printing.
