LUIS ROYO & ROMULO ROYO: ART GENERATIONS. LUCCA C&G 2023
One of the most anticipated events for many around the world is approaching: Lucca Comic&Games 2023. The interior of the medieval walled city of Lucca will be filled with collectors and fans of comics, illustration, painting and in general, fantastic art and science fiction, giving rise to one of the largest fairs in Europe and the world.
From October 14 to November 5 visitors can enjoy the exhibitions organized by Lucca Comic&Games and located in the Ducal Palace of the city, including Luis Royo & Romulo Royo: Art Generations, located in the great Galleria Ammannati, whose palace walls will be dressed in mystery, beauty and fantasy thanks to the works of artists Luis Royo and Romulo Royo.
In this special exhibition that will house more than 80 works in the hall, we will be able to enjoy many works by the artists, some of them belonging to their private collections that until now have never been exhibited; reference covers, unprecedented works, memorable originals... In addition to new pieces by the artists, who have worked both together and separately on a series based on the work of Master Goya, the universal artist coming from the same land that has endowed them not only with the gift of art, but also with the same obsessions, imagination and dreams, despite the centuries that separate them.
